Hall of Fame Member

Arthur B. Ramsey

Inducted: 1998

ARTHUR B. RAMSEY (1914-2000), a native of Oklahoma City, was a pioneer Oklahoma newsreel cameraman. Beginning in 1928, he set up the most ambitious 35 mm motion picture business in Oklahoma City, and filmed the news events of The Depression for Pathe, Paramount and Fox Movietone, including interviews with Will Rogers and Gov. “Alfalfa Bill” Murray. Armed with the first “sound-on-film” camera in the state, he preserved events and people of that era for the future. During World War II, he joined the Army and by 1943 was in charge of all combat camera units. After trying to start his own motion picture company, he began his career in the oil business in Dallas.
