Research & Artifacts

Sharing information about oil history and artifacts.

The American Oil & Gas Historical Society maintains a simple post as one way to help its membership share ideas, especially when seeking detailed information.  Contact the society at bawells@aoghs.org if you would like your research question added. Alas, the historical society lacks staff and financial resources for responding to all research requests. Please consider becoming a supporting member.
