McAfee & Taft:
The First 70 Years
As McAfee & Taft neared its 70th anniversary, a dedicated team was tasked with a daunting assignment: put together a long‑overdue official chronicle of the firm’s history, a formal recognition of its key players, and a grand celebration to mark this milestone.
Since then, dozens of people shared their time and their stories. Hundreds of documents, artifacts and memorabilia were collected and archived. Contributors included current, retired and former attorneys and staff, as well as family and friends of the firm’s founders and early partners.
As part of this extensive project, McAfee & Taft published a commemorative book about this rich history. Authored by award‑winning reporter and writer M. Scott Carter, a sixth‑generation Oklahoman, the book recounts fascinating anecdotes and illuminating backstories about the firm, its founders, its precedential cases won and landmark deals done, and the pivotal roles the firm has played in the history of Oklahoma City, the state of Oklahoma, and beyond. This is our story.
