  • Delete substub if not expanded quickly -- Cyrius|&#9998 19:20, Apr 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete, although this is certainly a subject that should have an article. --Αλεξ Σ 20:13, 10 Apr 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Ida Tarbell. It's not an article about Standard Oil, it's an article about Ida Tarbell's book about Standard Oil. Anyone editor can always change it back whenever they have relevant content. I do believe I'm going to make it a redirect now myself. Note: entire content of this page was:
This is a stub of The History of the Standard Oil Company book. A brief summary would go here once a little elbow grease and energy are found.

Consensus to keep. DJ Clayworth 20:39, 19 Apr 2004 (UTC)


  • I noticed a discrepancy between this article and the Standard Oil article. In the Standard Oil article, it says Tarbell's work was published in 19 pieces, this article says 17.
    • Don't have time to do the research on it now, but figured I'd note it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Masterfulninja (talkcontribs) 16:29, 6 October 2006 (UTC)
    • According to [1], it appears the correct number of parts is 19, so I went ahead and changed the article. - MasterfulNinja —Preceding undated comment added 16:40, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Sexualized example?[edit]

Why does the article state the book is a "sexualized" example? If nobody protests/sources this I'm removing from the article.Codeofdusk (talk) 18:02, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

All fixed now. Graham87 01:49, 4 March 2017 (UTC)
