Pajama Day - Alma J. Neill

Today we’re staying in our pajamas all day! Every now and then we all need a day to stay in our pajamas and just relax, so that’s what we’re doing today and hope you’ll celebrate with us. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Alma J. Neill. Her hometown was Norman, Oklahoma. Neill was a physiologist, which means she studied how our bodies work. She focused on sleeping sickness during her career! She spent the majority of her career working at the University of Oklahoma and with other institutions around the world. She was the first woman at OU to be granted a fellowship by the American Association of University Women. You can learn more by reading Alma J. Neill’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

We have to believe these other awesome Oklahoma Hall of Fame members love their pajamas too! Check out Carrie Underwood who just released a line of comfy clothes!
