Historical Note

The Petroleum Institute was an annual educational seminar, consisting of three courses, held at the University of Houston from 1958 until 1994. It was a joint effort between the Oil Information Committee of the Texas Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction of the College of Education. University faculty and individuals from the petroleum industry conducted the Institute. The Institute was designed to inform participants about all aspects of the petroleum industry. By doing so, it crossed the traditional course content fields normally taught at this University. The areas where the content of the Institute could be used were as follows:

  • 1. Sciences (emphasized earth science, geology, chemistry, and physics)
  • 2. Environmental Studies
  • 3. Social Sciences (emphasized economics, geography, history, and political science)

The content of the courses included presentations by lecturers from the petroleum industry who were experts on a particular subject. The courses also included the development of teaching materials that could be used to infuse energy education into the curriculum. The three courses carried three semester hours of graduate credit and were accepted by many graduate programs within the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

Scope and Contents

The collection arrived at the Archives in good order and the original order has been maintained whenever possible. The collection consists of thirty-five folders dating from 1958-1994. Materials in the collection include brochures, evaluation results, a few photographs, correspondence, and program booklets that describe the course activities. The only materials kept from the earliest years were participant rosters and programs of activities. Three years (1967-1969) were missing completely. The materials are in folders by year and arranged chronologically. The collection also included several publications relating to the oil industry, which have been filed at the end of the collection.
