The Teapot Dome Scandal: How Big Oil Bought the Harding White House and Tried to Steal the Country

The Teapot Dome Scandal: How Big Oil Bought

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.

Teapot Dome: Oil and Politics in the 1920's

Teapot Dome: Oil and Politics in the

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 Utilizing the published accounts and the mass of unpublished writings surrounding the scandal, he brings to life the people involved, both those condemned for their part in the conspiracy and those praised for uncovering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.

*Includes pictures*Includes quotes from participants and Congress*Includes footnotes, online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents“I have no trouble with my enemies. 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 ...

Dark Side of Fortune: Triumph and Scandal in the Life of Oil Tycoon Edward L. Doheny

Dark Side of Fortune: Triumph and Scandal in

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...

Geochemical Analyses of Oils and Gases, Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 3, Teapot Dome Field, Natrona County, Wyoming: USGS Open-File Report 2005-1275

Geochemical Analyses of Oils and Gases, Naval Petroleum

Initial results of this study confirm the presence of two different oil compositions at the Teapot Dome field, 1) oils from Cretaceous reservoirs and 2) oil from the Pennsylvanian Tensleep Sandstone reservoir. Cretaceous oils are less mature, show more evidence of secondary biodegradation and have a mixed terrestrial and marine kerogen source. Moreover, Cretaceous oils can be separated into three different groups, Upper Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs, Upper Cretaceous shale reservoirs, and lower Cretaceous Sandstone reservoirs. The Upper Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs, the Shannon Sandstone and the Second and Third Wall Creek Sands show differences related to gas production, gas-reinjection effects and steam flood effects. The Pennsylvanian Tensleep oil is more mature, less biodegraded, has higher a sulfur content, shows evidence of water washing, and has a marine kerogen source. Hydrocarbon degradation in the Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs varies along the length of the highly fractured Teapot Dome anticlinal structure--the main trap for hydrocarbons in the Teapot Dome field--which is divided into two domes by an east-west trending fault system. The least degraded samples occur in the southern dome, where reservoirs are deeper and in general, the most degraded are in the no...

The Ohio Gang: The World of Warren G. Harding

The Ohio Gang: The World of Warren G.

When Warren G. Harding was elected president in 1920, he brought to Washington some of his political chums from Ohio. They played poker; they sold illegal liquor permits, pardons and paroles. They sold fixes in the Justice Department and transported contraband across state lines. They sold naval oil reserves at Teapot Dome and sheets out of Army warehouses.The Ohio Gang, an historical entertainment peopled with the characters of the day, follows Harding and his cronies from their Ohio childhoods to the smoke-filled rooms of the Republican convention and on to the White House. We meet Henry Daugherty, the attorney general with the disconcerting eyes; Jess Smith, tall and pigeon-toed; Nan Britton, the teenage girl who fell in love with Harding’s campaign posters and who later became his mistress and mother to his illegitimate daughter; and America’s first lady, the Duchess. Following the antics of the president and his administration, The Ohio Gang concludes with Harding’s whistle-stop tour of the country—his final, despairing attempt to keep his presidency from coming undone.An entertaining and immensely readable encapsulation of democracy American-style, The Ohio Gang is an historical tour de force in which the presidency is seen as a traveling medicine show.
