Too Good to Pass Up—Wyatt Earp’s Ties to Oil and Gas Industry

Just too good to pass up—a Wyatt Earp story about his ties to the oil and gas industry from OilPro.

February 1926 – Lawman, gambler, gunslinger – Wyatt Earp was a man of many talents. One of his less well-known talents was that of an oilman.
Wyatt Earp is notorious for his now infamous role in the 1881 gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona where he killed three outlaw cowboys, but years later on this day in 1926, Wyatt Earp adds to his legacy when his investment in an oil well in the Kern River and Kern Front oil fields pays off with the well producing 150-barrels-a-day.
Earp?s investment was located just north of Bakersfield in the oil field of Kern County, California.
?Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything. In a gunfight? You need to take your time in a hurry.? These famous and wise words from Wyatt Earp contain logic that could also bode well in the oil field.
According to the American O&G Historical Society, at the age of 75, Earp decides to focus his energy on his biography and movie ambitions handing over the reigns of his oilfield investments for his wife?s sister, Hattie Lehnhardt to manage.
Earp?s wife, Josephine later writes, ??I was in hopes they would bring in a two or three hundred barrel well. But I must be satisfied as it could have been a duster, too.?
