    Historical Context

    The Petroleum and Trading Corporation primarily dealt with investing in oil securities, and was one of Carl H. Pforzheimer's companies.

    After the dissolution of Standard Oil Company in 1911, Carl Pforzheimer was a "pioneer" in the trading of old Standard Oil shares and underwriting issues of companies that resulted from the break up of Standard Oil . After he formed Carl H. Pforzheimer & Co. he focused on the oil and gas industry, The NY Times wrote that the firm was "instrumental in the underwriting of the securities of a number of oil companies at a time when Wall Street had developed little interest in the petroleum industry."

    This piece is issued to Carl H. Pforzheimer & Co.
