Oil Springs

Oil Springs, Canada, birthplace of the petroleum industry & oil-well engineer John Ira Dupee

Tomorrow, my grandson Conner Richardson graduates from Texas Tech in Lubbock to become my family’s second petroleum engineer.

In lieu of a sappy graduation card (I looked over many), I decided to pull together some photos from the Canadian birthplace of the modern oil industry and of oil-well engineer John Ira Dupee, first in the family to mine the black gold. You can peruse a PDF copy of the result here: Conners congrats
