History[edit]

The company, originally called the Petroleum Publishing Company and owned by Pennsylvanian Patrick Boyle, began in 1910 with the acquisition of a magazine based in Beaumont, Texas, called Oil Investors Journal; Boyle moved the publication to Tulsa and renamed it Oil & Gas Journal.[4][5] Boyle died in 1920, and was succeeded first by his son-in-law Frank T. Lauinger, and then, in 1932, by his grandson P.C. Lauinger, who led the Journal to increasing financial success, established a number of other petroleum-oriented publications, and acquired publications in the dental care field.[6] P.C. Lauinger remained in control of the company until his death in 1988; the company is now led by his son-in-law, Robert Biolchini.[4]
