On Feb. 3, 1942, charter members met in the Hall of Mirrors in the Municipal auditorium to form Oklahoma Farm Bureau with a total of 968 members. Membership cost $5, resulting in an inflow of $4,735. Comanche County had the most members with 105.
According to OKFB records, almost everything decided the previous day by the newly-elected board was well-accepted. In addition to other approved actions, the membership approved the division of the state into seven districts and the plan to have resolutions originate in county meetings and require approval by a majority of voting delegates at the state convention.
