A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Petroleum Collection - The most important factor that ushered in the petroleum industry was the internal combustion engine. In 1903 California was the top oil producer, overtaken by Oklahoma in 1907. By 1920 Texas took over the lead with further major finds in East Texas in 1930. A major oil find was Prudhoe Bay in 1967, which made the Alaskan Purchase of 1862 of great importance. The development of the oil industry was helped by a number of personalities: Andrew Mellon, who invested in Gulf Oil Corporation, had a knack of recognizing industries with great potential growth. Whether or not Henry Ford foresaw such a huge growth industry with his automobile and truck developments, the impact is unprecedented. George Washington Carver, who spent his life as a "chemurgist" and agricultural experimenter, worked with Henry Ford attempting to develop synthetic rubber tires. His work was the beginning of modern chemistry, with its explosion of oil based chemicals and plastic. The oil industry is very involved in the very fabric of our daily lives. OIL!
