Biographical Note

American geologist and petroleum engineer Ralph Arnold (1875-1961) was born in Marshalltown, Iowa, on April 14, 1875. His father, Delos Arnold (1830-1909), was a lawyer and Iowa state senator who became interested in the study of fossils after the discovery of crinoids fossils in LeGrand, Iowa. The Arnolds moved to Pasadena, California, in 1886, and Ralph attended both Pasadena High School and Throop Polytechnic School (now the California Institute of Technology) before receiving a B.A. in geology and mining from Stanford in 1899. He continued at Stanford to complete an M.A. (1900) and Ph.D. (1902) in geology and paleontology. In 1899, Arnold married Frankie Winninette Stokes. The couple had two daughters, Winninette, who married chemist Richard M. Noyes, and Elizabeth (McKee).
Arnold worked for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) from 1900 to 1909, and from 1903-1909 published a variety of paleontological articles. He was active in petroleum surveys throughout the United States, and organized the Petroleum Branch of the United States Bureau of Mines. In 1910, Arnold left the USGS. Herbert Hoover, Arnold's former colleague at Stanford, then in London as a consulting engineer for Gold Fields, Ltd. of South Africa, recommended Arnold to that company for a survey of oil resources in Venezuela, about which experiences Arnold later published a book, The First Big Oil Hunt: Venezuela, 1911-1916. At that time there was a single oil well in Venezuela producing 40 gallons of oil per day. In 1958, the year Arnold published his book recording his spectacular success in Venezuela, the country was producing 2,500,000 barrels of petroleum per day. The survey, the most extensive and thorough of its kind ever undertaken in South America, was widely publicized throughout the world.
Arnold's second survey, conducted for the General Asphalt Company in Northern Venezuela, employed, under Arnold's direction, a staff of 52 geologists, engineers, drillers, etc. So successful was this venture, a Royal Dutch Shell Company paid General Asphalt $1,000,000 for 51 percent in General Asphalt's Caribbean Petroleum Co.
After Arnold's South American explorations between 1911 and 1916, he took up wild-catting, both in petroleum and in every conceivable kind of mineral, e.g. he joined the Independents, in contradistinction to the big oil companies. He organized one exploratory company after another. His manipulations extended from Alaska to Mexico, all over the Far West and the South West, though the syndicates that Arnold organized failed.
In the 1920s Arnold’s interests turned to politics. He was an ardent Republican and served as chairman of three electoral committees for the Presidency in California and was actively involved in the Herbert Hoover presidential campaign. He remained committed to the California Academy of Sciences, the Cooper Ornithological Society, and the Sierra Club, among other organizations. Arnold died in Santa Barbara, California, in 1961.

Scope and Content

The collection contains letters, documents (including 190,000 reports), 1200 maps, 500 photographs, and 8200 pieces of printed material related to the life and career of geologist and petroleum engineer Ralph Arnold. Subjects represented in the collection include: mining, petroleum, and seismology in the Western United States as well as Canada, Mexico, Cuba, South America, etc.; political papers from 1914-1956, mostly concerning the campaign of Herbert Hoover for president; family and personal papers (1836-1961) of Arnold and his father, Delos Arnold, containing source material on Pasadena and Southern California local history. The collection also contains Arnold's field books, including those made at Stanford University with the U.S. Geological Survey (1900-09). Arnold's petroleum reports, numbering about 1,000 reports, extending all over the United States, Alaska, Canada, and Mexico, are a valuable resource for studying the Petroleum industry during this period.

Field books. 1899-1957

Scope and Content Note

The field books cover a period of about a half a century. The earliest were kept while Arnold was getting his doctorate at Stanford, and the succeeding one, 1900-1904, written while Arnold was a member of the U.S. Geological Survey, furnish the basis for the work upon which Arnold established his professional reputation as a paleontologist and petroleum engineer. The later books, 1944-1957, represent valuable surveys in petroleum fields in Arizona, California, Oklahoma, Oregon, Montana, Texas and Washington, as well as Alaska, Canada and Mexico.
