About the Midwest City area:
Midwest City celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2017 with 75 years of riveting history and Rose State College connections. Midwest City was founded in 1942 by Oklahoma businessman and builder W.P. "Bill" Atkinson. Atkinson learned of the United States Army's desire to build a new airfield in the center of the U.S., the largest military base to ever be built. Today with more than 26,000 military and civilian employees, Tinker is the largest single-site employer in Oklahoma.
