Hugh Roy Cullen: A Story of American Opportunity
The story of Hugh Roy Cullen and Mrs. Cullen, and their family, is one of the most inspiring we have had the privilege of publishing. This is not because Mr. Cullen became one of the world's richest men. He is not rich now, because he has given most of his wealth away. Nor was he always rich - he began life a comparatively poor boy, who went to work in his early teens. This story is significant and inspiring for three reasons. First, finding oil was not a matter of luck with Hugh Roy Cullen. It was the result of study and creative thinking, of sound judgment exercised to overcome great risks. Second, Mr. Cullen was able to undertake and carry out the hazardous and complex operation of drilling for oil because in his earlier careers he had established a reputation which earned him the respect of every man who knew him. Third, Mr. and Mrs. Cullen have chosen to enjoy the greatest happiness their money can give, the pleasure of seeing it used for the benefit of others. Hugh Roy Cullen: A Story Of American Opportunity will show democratic thinking people everywhere that frontiers are never closed, that opportunities are always open to those willing to work for them, and that the American way of life has much for all the world to admire.
