kom lecture series #5: "VICTORY ON A SEA OF OIL: WORLD WAR I ON THE EL DORADO OILFIELD"
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 3:00pm
Speaker: ARDATH LAWSON, KOM
Join us for the final program in our 2018 Historic Lecture Series! Bringing to life the chaos and bustle of the late 1910s oil patch, this talk will describe the role played by the newly-opened El Dorado field in the WWI war effort. Due to the sheer amount of oil flowing from this one 34-square mile field -- oil which was then used to fuel trucks, ships, and airplanes, lubricate machine parts, make rubber tires, and more -- it was said that the Allies in this first mechanized war "floated to victory on a sea of oil." Come hear how it all happened!
