Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Norman in maps: Photo 5
Boom! Norman grew from from 11,000 in 1940 to 28,000 in 1950. This map is from a year later. The big changes are the North and South campuses. Both were built as naval air stations, which is why the north campus has an airport. (The south campus was for airplane mechanics and needed no airport.) The South Campus was reactivated during the Korean War but was finally abandoned in 1959. The city itself fits almost entirely with the four square miles centered on the original townsite. The bridge across the Canadian (bits of its foundation are still visible, long after the construction of I-35) was part of State Route 9, heading west across the state. Before the freeway, traffic to and from Fort Worth stayed on the east side of the river. (p)Census figures: 11,429 in 1940, 27,806 in 1950, and 33, 412 in 1960.
