Jim will give us a human perspective on the history of oil development in the Big Horn Basin. The story begins in 1913 and features a greedy landowner, a geologist who lost his royalties, armed stand-offs, legal disputes, troubles with the federal government, a man who claimed he owned it all, and a passionate businessman.
Jim is the chairman of Allen-Hoffman Exploration Co. in Houston, TX and holds a doctorate in physics from the University of Wyoming.
