Thomas never thought he would end up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Thomas and his wife Mary Ann hail from Louisiana, where they both obtained their undergraduate degrees at Louisiana State University. Then shortly after graduating from law school in Baltimore, Thomas’s wife was offered an opportunity to complete her graduate studies in literature at the University of Tulsa. “The plan was to stick it out in Tulsa for a few years while she completed her PhD and then move elsewhere. What we discovered was that we really liked Tulsa, and we’ve never regretted our decision to stay.”
