Meet Author Robert Cargill - The Great Texas Oil Heist

Friday, June 18, 2021

It was 1946. World War II was over. The thieves went to work. They drilled deviated wells from outside the East Texas Oil Field back into the oil that remained after 16 years of production. This was the oil field that supplied the oil needed for an Allied victory in 1945. The deviators continued their nefarious activity until an angry and aggressive attorney general led his posse of lawmen, including the Texas Rangers, into East Texas to stop the theft and administer Texas justice. Meet author Robert Cargill and hear the history of The Great Texas Oil Heist. The program will be held in Southlake Town Hall and concurrently through Zoom. Registration is required to attend through Zoom.
