Teapot Dome Oil

Teapot Dome, a sandstone formation in Wyoming that overlooks a United States Naval Oil Reserve, furnished a name for one of the most sensational scandals in the history of American politics. Professor Noggle unravels this complex tale of corruption, tracing Teapot Dome from its origins in the conservation feuds of 1920-1921 through the bitter partisanship that evolved between the two major political parties. He scrutinizes the tactics used by each party either to exploit or to minimize the conspiracy. Utilizing the published accounts and the mass of unpublished writings surrounding the scandal, he brings to life the people involved, both those condemned for their part in the conspiracy and those praised for uncovering it, including: Albert B. Fall, Secretary of the Interior; Harry F. Sinclair, President of Sinclair Consolidated Oil Corp.; Edwin Denby, Secretary of the Navy; Senators Thomas Walsh and Robert LaFollette; President Warren G. Harding, and many others. Concerned primarily with the scandal's effect on people and politics and not with fixing blame, Professor Noggle reappraises the issues and personalities, links new names to Teapot Dome, and removes some of the stigma from others.

Teapot Dome Oil

In this amazing and at times ribald story, Laton McCartney tells how Big Oil handpicked Warren G. Harding, an obscure Ohio senator, to serve as our twenty-third president. Harding and his “oil cabinet” made it possible for cronies to secure vast fuel reserves that had been set aside for use by the U.S. Navy. In exchange, the oilmen paid off senior government officials, bribed newspaper publishers, and covered the GOP campaign debt. When news of the scandal finally emerged, the consequences were disastrous. Drawing on contemporary records newly made available to McCartney, The Teapot Dome Scandal reveals a shocking, revelatory picture of just how far-reaching the affair was, how high the stakes, and how powerful the conspirators–all told in a dazzling narrative style.

I can take care of my enemies in a fight. But my friends, my goddamned friends, they're the ones who keep me walking the floor at nights!” – President Warren HardingAmericans in the 21st century cite the relatively recent Watergate Scandal, and to a lesser degree the Enron Oil Scandal, as prime examples of modern governmental corruption. It is a widely held perception that these incidents, particularly the one bringing about the first resignation of an American president, caused the public to lose trust in federal institutions and political figures. However, the prototype for the breakdown of governmental fidelity lies in the early 20th century, a time in which the recent territories of the United States struggled to evolve from a lawless, Wild West culture. The federal government viewed its western resources as both unlimited and outside the grasp of the government. The leading oil barons, born and raised in the 19th century, were accustomed to federally-blessed land-grabs and easily obtained mining and lumber interests, often doled out to the social and financial elite ...

Teapot Dome Oil

Dark Side of Fortune contains all the elements of a Hollywood thriller. Filling in one of the most important gaps in the history of the American West, Margaret Leslie Davis's riveting biography follows Edward L. Doheny's fascinating story from his days as an itinerant prospector in the dangerous jungles of Mexico, where he built the $100-million oil empire that ushered in the new era of petroleum. But it was a tale that ended in tragedy, when―at the peak of his economic power―Doheny was embroiled in the notorious Teapot Dome scandal and charged with bribing the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.Few captains of industry have matched Doheny's drive to succeed and his far-reaching ambition. Drawn to the West in search of fortune, he failed at prospecting before finding oil in a smelly, tar-befouled lot in Los Angeles in 1892. Certain that the substance had commercial value, he envisioned steamships and locomotives no longer powered by coal, but by oil. After developing massive oil wells in Mexico, Doheny built an international oil empire that made him one of the wealthiest men in the world. But in 1924 the scandal of Teapot Dome engulfed him. As accusations mounted, he hired America's top legal talent for his defense. During the ten-year-long litigation, Doheny's only son was myste...
