Administrative history

Adanac Oil Company Limited was incorporated in May 1914 with William Stewart Herron, 1870-1939, as president. Herron came to Alberta ca. 1904 and was involved in farming and the petroleum industry. He helped found other petroleum companies including Calgary Petroleum Products. Adanac Oil was struck in November 1922.
