dc.description.abstract This item is part of a collection of photographs and documents of oil exploration in Texas and Louisiana, 1930s-1950s, taken by Shell Oil employee Andy A. Barentine.
dc.description.abstract The oil crews worked without interruption during WWII, being exempted from military service because of the importance of their work for the defense effort. They were among the few people who were able to have tires and gasoline for their vehicles. Crew members were allowed to buy used tires from company vehicles, which allowed the Barentines to visit the family back home in Sanger, Texas.
