Summary
Clayton Wheat Williams - West Texas oilman, rancher, civic leader, veteran of the Great War, and a vocational historian - was a risk taker who both reflected and molded the history of his region. His life spanned a dynamic period in Texas history when automobiles replaced horse-drawn wagons, electricity replaced steam power in the oilfields, and barren and virtually worthless ranch land became valuable for the oil and gas beneath its surface
