Biographical Note

The photographs in this collection were taken by Clinton B. Glasgow who lived in Beaumont, Texas. His work as a chauffeur and salesman for prominent Texas businessman, John Gilbert, took him to locations in the Humble and Orange oil fields as well as to locations in other states such as New York, Kentucky, and Minnesota and to Juarez, Mexico. The photographs he took on these trips reflect his interest in the oil industry and in daily life around Beaumont and the surrounding area and in things he observed in his travels. These photographs remained in the Glasgow family for many years before being donated to the Beaumont Historical Library.
