    Historical Context

    The Centralia Oil Company was incorporated in California and had wells known as the Centralia-Eubanks and the Centralia-Vedder in the Mountain View and Edison fields in Kern County.

    Frederick Libby


    Captain Frederick Libby (July 15, 1891 – January 9, 1970) became the first American flying ace, while serving as an observer in the Royal Flying Corps during World War I.

    Libby transferred to the United States Army Air Service on September 15, 1917. He returned to the United States and helped raise war funding through Liberty Loans. He was then invalided out of military service with spondylitis.

    Despite his disability, and the predictions that he would die early as a result of his condition, Libby lived into his late seventies, prospering as an oil prospector and businessman. He was a founder of Western Air Lines. In his latter years, he wrote his memoirs, Horses Don't Fly, which was published after his death on January 9, 1970.
