After reporting on the petroleum industry since the 1980s, I founded the American Oil & Gas Historical Society in 2003 to promote community petroleum museums and other organizations that preserve a remarkable history. AOGHS is a nonprofit program I run from my home office in Washington, D.C. I maintain and regularly add content to a website, speak at industry events, help reporters, researchers, teachers, students and others interested in U.S. petroleum history. More than 345 educational articles are now posted on the AOGHS website, which includes many energy education links. I believe individuals from the oil patch, geologists, petroleum engineers, and many companies not only preserve a remarkable history, they serve as ambassadors to an often skeptical public. Petroleum industry social, economic and technological achievements offer a context for teaching the modern energy business.With no staff, I am supported only by volunteers and tax-deductible donations.
