Jesse V. Howell papers, 1931-1948
Scope and Contents
The papers of Jesse V. Howell, a petroleum geologist, consist of what appear to be photostats of a compilation of research-reference notes, autograph and typescript transcriptions of excerpts from various sources, and draft fragments of a technical paper Howell may have written in the 1930s pertaining to petroleum engineering practices and geological theories in the early days of the oil industry. The papers also include seven pieces of correspondence between Howell and colleagues dating from 1931 through 1948.
Parke Atherton Dickey (petroleum geologist and professor at the University of Tulsa, 1961-1975) acquired the papers from Howell in the late 1950s. The papers were given to the Department of Special Collections in 1992 by the University of Tulsa Petroleum Abstracts Department where they had been housed until that time.
