Papers, 1918-1922.

Papers, 1918-1922, consisting of correspondence, letters, a stock certificate, a cancelled check, and a map.

The Gotebo field in Okla. received the most attention. T.W. Crow's experience as a dragline operator is discussed also. J.H. Schmidt took care of the actual transactions in Okla., so he is the primary correspondent. J.H. Bankhead (1872-1946) was a lawyer for and a business partner of Crow and another correspondent.
