Sam P Daniel Voices of Oklahoma

    • Society & Culture

Longtime lawyer and nature preservationist Sam P. Daniel died July 14, 2019.

While living in Oklahoma City during his grade school days, Sam P. Daniel was a neighbor of Federal Judge Alfred P. Murrah. Sam’s parents traveled frequently, so he spent many nights at the Murrah home. Sam loved the judge like a father and decided at an early age to follow in his footsteps. It was the Alfred P Murrah federal building that was the target of the
Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995.

Sam graduated from the University of Oklahoma law school and eventually joined the law firm of Doerner, Saunders, Daniel & Anderson. Sam had more than 50 years of experience in matters of oil & gas law, family law and general civil litigation. He enjoyed fly-fishing and bird hunting for many years. His collection of 37 species of North American migratory waterfowl, each one hunted by Sam, is on display at Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve near Bartlesville. His many honors include the Nature Works Wildlife Stewardship Award.

In his oral history interview for Voices of Oklahoma Sam talks about his meeting with then Senator John Kennedy, his participation in President Dwight Eisenhower’s inaugural parade, some of his interesting legal cases and, of course, hunting stories.
