Oklahoma is a nice farm type state, with very earthy people. The open land, gren pastures and old fashioned charm is a comfortable option for those that feel that city living is not what they want.
Back again to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Howard_Marshall.
Born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, J. Howard Marshall II attended George School, a private high school in Newtown, Pennsylvania, and then studied liberal arts at Haverford College, both Quaker institutions, graduating in 1926. While at George School and Haverford he edited the school newspapers, captained the debate teams and was an All American soccer player and played competitive tennis under the instruction of professional Bill Tilden. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Yale Law School in 1931. At Yale, he was case editor of the Yale Law Journal and studied with the law and economics pioneer Walton Hale Hamilton.
Upon graduation he served from 1931 to 1933 as an Assistant Dean at Yale Law School and his teaching schedule during these years has been definitively documented. At the same time, he was producing scholarship as a member of the influential legal realist school of thought, working with future Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas on an article entitled A Factual Study of Bankruptcy Administration and Some Suggestions. However, his most influential works, done with Norman Meyers, were two articles entitled Legal Planning of Petroleum Production. These pioneering studies offered an alternative to the then-current practices of controlled production among the oil industry, which were leading to dramatic boom/bust cycles, and gained the interest of the government, especially since the legal minds behind the New Deal were staunch legal realists.
In 1933, he left Yale to become the Assistant Solicitor at the Department of Interior under Harold L. Ickes. During his first tour at Interior, he authored the Connally Hot Oil Act of 1935 in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA). Specifically, it revived the portion of the original legislation that regulated the flow of oil between states. Ostensibly enacted to protect the industry from “contraband oil” in order to stabilize falling prices.
In 1935, he left government service to become the special counsel to the president (Kenneth R. Kingsbury) of Standard Oil of California (now Chevron) in San Francisco, and began his long career as an oilman. Another two years later he became a partner at the firm Pillsbury Madison Sutro (now known as Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman), which was the company’s outside counsel. It was at Standard Oil of California that he began a life long business association and friendship with his mentor Ralph K. Davies. In 1942, he was called back to Washington, D.C. during the war as Solicitor of the Petroleum Administration for War, helping develop America‘s energy policy during the war, and later as a member of the Committee on Reparations. In 1944, after developing a relationship with Paul Blazier, he became President of Ashland Oil and Refining Co. (now Marathon Oil). Later positions included Executive Vice President at Signal Oil & Gas under Samuel B. Mosher, President of Union Texas Petroleum and Executive Vice President of Allied Signal (all now Honeywell, Union Texas Petroleum Holdings was later sold by Allied Signal to ARCO and merged into BP),until his semi-retirement in 1969.
Marshall remained active in the energy industry through many personal endeavors with Great Northern Oil Company, Koch Industries, Coastal Corp (now El Paso Corporation), Independent Refinery, International Oil and Gas, various exploration syndicates and culminating in 1984, when he founded Marshall Petroleum. Throughout many of his endeavors, Marshall turned most of his business associations into friendships; including J.R. Parten, Fred Koch and his sons, Oscar Wyatt and E.O. Buck.
Marshall turned his investment in Great Northern Oil Co. with Fred Koch during the 1950s into a 16% stake in Koch Industries, now the nation’s second largest privately held company. When his eldest son J. Howard Marshall III sided with Bill Koch, Fredrick Koch and other collateral family members in a failed attempt to take over Koch Industries from Charles Koch and David Koch, he purchased back company stock given previously as a gift and removed the eldest son from his estate plan. Conversely, during the same dispute, the late E. Pierce Marshall sided with his father, Charles Koch and David Koch.
He married Eleanor Pierce in 1931 and divorced in 1961. They had two sons together: J. Howard Marshall III (born on February 6, 1936) and E. Pierce Marshall (born on January 12, 1939). His second marriage, to Bettye Bohannon, lasted from 1961 until her death in 1991. In 1994, at the age of 89, he married 26-year-old model Anna Nicole Smith. Their marriage lasted thirteen months until his death.

(m.1960-2007; her death)
Viertel was twice married. His first wife was Virginia Ray “Jigee” Schulberg, the ex-wife of the novelist and screenwriter Budd Schulberg; she was pregnant with their only child, Christine, when Viertel abandoned her to live with the fashion model Bettina. His second wife was the actress Deborah Kerr (from 23 July 1960 until Kerr’s death on 16 October 2007); by her, he had two stepdaughters, Melanie and Francesca Bartley. He died nineteen days after Kerr in Marbella, Spain; the cause was lymphoma.
Bettina/ Aly Khan of Iran:
Simone Micheline Bodin (1925—), known professionally as Bettina or Bettina Graziani, was a French fashion model of the 1940s and 1950s and an early muse to the fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy. She also has been a designer of knitwear and, later, a poet and composer.
Born in France in 1925, Simone Micheline Bodin was described as “a freckle-faced rail worker’s daughter from Brittany before becoming a model. She was renamed and recreated by Jacques Fath, who told her, “We already have a Simone; you look to me like a Bettina.” Bodin was invited by Christian Dior to join his fashion house which she refused, choosing instead to work for Fath.
Bodin became one of the century’s first supermodels, rivalled in the Forties only by the “English beauty” Barbara Goalen. She was associated with Pierre Balmain, Lucien Lelong, Jacques Fath, and Christian Dior, but most importantly with Givenchy, for whom she worked as a model and press agent. Hubert de Givenchy named his first collection, which debuted in 1952, after her; one of its designs, the Byronesque “Bettina” blouse, became a fashion icon in the early 1950s and inspired the bottle for the best-selling Givenchy parfum “Amarige.”
After a short marriage to Gilbert “Benno” Graziani, a French photographer and reporter, she became the companion of Peter Viertel, the American screenwriter. Later she was the fiancée of Prince Aly Khan, a playboy who briefly was the United Nations ambassador from Pakistan.
She retired from modeling in 1955, after meeting Aly Khan. In 1960, Bettina, then pregnant with their child, survived the car accident that took the life of the prince; the shock of the accident would later result in a miscarriage. After Aly Khan’s death, Bettina wrote her memoir, Bettina par Bettina (Paris: Flammarion, 1964).

Also in Oklahoma (we care):
The Kerr-McGee Corporation, founded in 1929, was an energy company involved in the exploration and production of oil and gas. It was also heavily involved in uranium mining and milling in the United States. On June 23, 2006, Houston-based Anadarko Petroleum Corporation agreed to acquire Kerr-McGee in an all-cash transaction totaling $16.5 billion plus the assumption of $2.6 billion in debt. Kerr-McGee shareholders voted to approve the offer on August 10, 2006 and Kerr-McGee ceased to exist as an independent entity. As a result of the takeover, all operations (with the exception of Tronox which was spun off as a separate company in 2005) moved out of Oklahoma.
The company later known as Kerr-McGee was founded in 1929 by Oklahoma businessman-politician Robert S. Kerr (1896-1963). When Dean A. McGee (1904-1989), a former chief geologist for Phillips Petroleum, joined the firm in 1946, it changed its name to Kerr-McGee Oil Industries, Incorporated. The company initially focused mostly on off-shore oil exploration and production, being one of the first companies to use drillships in the Gulf of Mexico and later one of the first companies to use a Spar type platform in the area.
And Phillips again, and Archie Dunham, and his SAD sort of crooked and sweet smile:
Archie W. Dunham (born 1938) is the Independent Non-Executive Chairman of Chesapeake Energy in Oklahoma City. He served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Conoco Inc. from January 1996 to August 2002, then as Chairman of ConocoPhillips, following the merger of Conoco Inc. and Phillips Petroleum Company, until his retirement on September 30, 2004.
