Bayne: My Recollections of Venezuela 1925 to 1953

August 6, 1972

This manuscript, available in five parts here, is one of the few firsthand accounts from some of the earliest years of multinational firms' emergence in Venezuelan oil.


Special thanks to Liz Lutz, who send me this manuscript along with another manuscript and transcripts from one of her own interviews (which you can access here and here, respectively), as well as Diana Gurley, Oster Bayne's daughter, who gave us permission to share his story.
