In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Pictured here are, top row, Gerhard Fischer (later spelled Fisher) and Kenneth C. White, and bottom row, Charles Garrett and Jack Gifford (Tesoro).

This week's In the Treasure Corner podcast remembers these giants of the industry, and wishes time didn't pass quite so quickly as it does.

Loved that Dan... It's very much a reminder of just how old we are, and with that said I think I will pour myself another one.
