Oil in Texas: The Gusher Age, 1895-1945 (Clifton and Shirley Caldwell Texas Heritage)

As the twentieth century began, oil in Texas was easy to find, but the quantities were too small to attract industrial capital and production. Then, on January 10, 1901, the Spindletop gusher blew in. Over the next fifty years, oil transformed Texas, creating a booming economy that built cities, attracted out-of-state workers and companies, funded schools and universities, and generated wealth that raised the overall standard of living--even for blue-collar workers. No other twentieth-century development had a more profound effect upon the state.
