A Base is Being Built

Bill Atkinson purchased the land that was eventually developed into Midwest City when he caught rumor that an air base was being constructed in the area. After being incorporated in 1943, the city was designed by Seward Mott and named after the original designation of the Midwest Air Depot. The air base would take on a different name, however. After Clarence L. Tinker was killed in World War II, the base became known as the Tinker Air Force Base. In the 1960s, hospitals, shopping centers, and residential homes began moving into the area and the population quickly increased.
