February 27          Maxwell meets with the committee in charge of financing the proposed 18-hole municipal golf course at Mohawk Park in Tulsa.  The committee “went over the proposed course” with Maxwell and plans to proceed as soon as 600 members commit to pay $15 each to finance construction with the goal of having the course “ready for use before this season is over.”  [The Daily Oklahoman, February 28, 1926]  Editorial Note:  Maxwell is often credited with only a green redesign of the Mohawk Park course in 1932 or 1934.  However, this article seems to show that he designed the original golf course.  The 1930’s redesign was most likely done my Floyd Farley.
