WARREN: the man, the company

CLOSING SOON

Inspired by the oil boom of the early twentieth-century, Tennessean William K. Warren moved to Oklahoma and began the Warren Petroleum Company.  Warren Petroleum was the largest producer and marketer of natural gasoline and LPG (propane) in the world by the early 1950s.  This exhibit chronicles the story of the oil company and the man who started it.  Featured in the exhibit are promotional items, company records, and a selection of images in the THS collection.
