Map of Central Texas Oil and Gas Fields Showing Development and Principal Geological Features Compliments of H.W. and R.H. Whitney.

[Texas?]: H.W. and R. H. Whitney, [ca. 1925]. Hand-colored map on linen, printed in blue, 55.5 x 32.5 cm, plus margins; manuscript numerical notes on verso.

An apparently unrecorded geological map of the central Texas oil and gas fields.

Extending from Comanche County in the north to Bexar County in the south, and Dallas County in the east to Mitchell County in the west, this map identifies the geological characteristics of the region, defined by dotted lines, color, and text along the dotted lines. A profile of the geological strata appears at the bottom of the map, using the same color scheme. The strata identified include the Permian (pink), the Pennsylvanian and Mississippian Carboniferous (blue), the Comanchean Cretaceous (yellow), Upper Cretaceous (purple), Eocene (orange) and Miocene Pliocene (uncolored). A note along the line dividing the Pennsylvanian Carboniferous from the Mississippian Lower Carboniferous reads “Deep Oil Horizon of Park’s Caddo Ranger Coleman.”

This map was issued, “Compliments of H.W. and R.H. Whitney,” as noted below the title. The Whitneys were affiliated with the Rotare Oil & Gas Company of Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to the International Petroleum Register for 1921, H.W. served as Vice President and R.H. as Secretary and Treasurer. An article by R. H. Whitney, entitled “Old Wells of Oklahoma and Kansas” appeared in the Oil and Gas Journal (Oct. 7, 1921). Also based in Tulsa, C. E. Stalker was a landowner and oil driller who was active in Texas and elsewhere during this period, as indicated in various petroleum industry journals of the day.
