Special collections and archives at OSU was kind enough to allow me to come in today and read Raw Data Report : Gans, OK 1957 Tornado. This report contains data from a damage survey conducted by the meteorology department at then "Oklahoma A&M" and was headed by Don R. Dickson. It also contains a few interviews from locals, a computation of possible wind speeds in the tornado, and a hypothesis put forward for the odd holes the tornado "dug" into the ground. I'll post some pics of some of my favorite pages and of the photos which were simply pasted to paper and located at the end of the report. Forgive the glare from the fluorescent lights above my table that marred some of the photos.
