Biographical Sketch

James Harvey Holdeman was a geologist primarily involved in the location and production of oil and gas from shallow producing pools, and in the promotion of investment in these. Focusing on north, central and south-central Texas, he operated throughout Texas and parts of the midwest and southwest United States.

Holdeman was involved in the formation and management of several petroleum-related companies. In 1917 he served as a trustee for the Moran-Putnam Oil and Gas Company, based in Moran, Texas. In 1920 he became a trustee of the American Petroleum Producing Company, headquartered in Waco, Texas. In the late 1920s he was president of the Geological Petroleum Corporation of Fort Worth. One of his major associations was with the Atlantic Pacific Corporation of Austin, Texas. Chartered in 1933, Holdeman served on the board of directors for several years. In 1949 he formed his own company, Holdeman Petroleum Corporation, of San Antonio, Texas. He was on its board of directors until the early 1950s when it became inactive. Holdeman Oil and Minerals, also of San Antonio, was probably his last venture. It was active through the mid-1950s. In addition to his duties as a corporate officer, Holdeman also promoted the stocks and securities of Atlantic Pacific Corporation and Holdeman Petroleum Corporation. James H. Holdeman died in San Antonio, Texas, on September 26, 1963.

Scope and Contents of the Papers

Geologist James Harvey Holdeman explored for oil and gas in Texas and the southwestern and midwestern United States. The majority of the collection consists of maps showing James Harvey Holdeman's oil and gas interests. Also present are correspondence; legal records; geological surveys and reports, including field notes; reports of oil and gas companies; and promotional materials. Dates covered are 1879-1965, with the bulk of the materials concerned with Holdeman's oil and gas interests during 1920-1950. The small amount of correspondence deals with Holdeman's offerings of stocks and securities. The legal documents consist largely of charters and bylaws for some of Holdeman's corporations. Included in this collection are the papers of a fellow geologist, F.M. Van Keuren, whose files include correspondence, geological surveys, and maps.

Fuller descriptions of the maps in the Holdeman papers are found in the State Archives Map Collection database [https://www.tsl.texas.gov/apps/arc/maps/].

Maps from Holdeman's personal library, consisting of World, Canada, Mexico, United States, states, county, and city maps, dating 1880-1962 and undated. Many of the maps are manuscripts, drawn by or for Holdeman, showing oil and gas interests of his and several companies he was involved with. Also present are survey and ownership maps, sectional maps of Texas, street maps, sketches of individual tracts of land, and sketches showing real estate interests. Many of the printed maps contain manuscript notes and notations of oil and gas wells and leases. Holdeman signed most of the maps on the reverse side, often including his address. Major areas of coverage are Bexar, Brown, Callahan, and Williamson Counties.
Arrangement
