OK? Okay!

On this day in 1839, the initials "O.K." are first published in The Boston Morning Post. Meant as an abbreviation for "oll korrect," a popular slang misspelling of "all correct" at the time, OK steadily made its way into the everyday speech of Americans.
from On This Day in History

OK = oll korrect? Who knew? Not me, at least not until now. Okay as it is sometimes written, has been around for a long time! It has made its way into popular culture and into these items in our collection:
