This week the University of Tulsa Special Collections and Archives received a new collection from Laura E. Hudson. This collection consists of 115 handmade illustrated petroleum and geology flash cards. These cards were used by the Amoco Oil training center in Tulsa Oklahoma, between the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s. The flash cards are 12.75” x 8.5” and were used by instructors for training new incoming geologists and engineers that were new hires by the Amoco Oil Corporation. The cards include quizzes, graphs, questions, chemical compositions, equations, interesting facts, etc all related to the study of Petroleum engineering. One of the facts listed on a card is “Petroleum is found in rocks from the Precambrian to the Pleistocene (very old to very young geological age rock).” If anyone is interested in viewing these cards they may be viewed on request in our Reading Room. The Special Collections is open Monday – Friday 8am-5pm.
