Oil Baron of the Southwest: Edward L. Doheny and the Development of the Petroleum Industry in California by MARTIN ANSELL

Doheny was famous as the best oilman of his generation. In 1893, he became the first person to successfully drill for oil in Los Angeles, and he led the development of Southern California's major oil fields. He went to Mexico in 1900 and carved out an empire that over the next twenty years produced more oil than any other company in the world.
