This rare photo contains two legends of Texas oil. A very young Glenn McCarthy (left) and Michel T. Halbouty (right) sit in Halbouty’s office and lab. Both wildcatters made and lost fortunes pursuing riches in Texas oilfields. Glenn McCarthy would end up building one of the most famous hotels in Texas “The Shamrock” in Houston while Michel Halbouty would help influence and educate political leaders about the oil industry.
