Collection 215

Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Expedition (LAGCOE). Collection, 1954-1990

2 feet, 6 in, 13 v.

The Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Expedition (LAGCOE) was organized in 1955. This corporation was organized as a non-profit corporation to promote a better understanding and appreciation of the part played by the oil industry in our society. This is a biannual event, which is located in Lafayette, and is the heart of Louisiana’s land and offshore oil activity. The oil industry is the largest industry in the state. LAGCOE alternates with an oil show called “Permain Basin Oil Show” which is held in Odessa, Texas.

LAGCOE is known as the “working Man’s oil show”. It started out with all volunteer workers, with the show secretary and the labor on the show grounds. LAGCOE Looney is an honorary position given to an oilman who worked on the rigs.

This collection consists of exhibit materials including brochures, pamphlets, photographs, correspondence, bylaws and resolution, history about the oil show, scrapbooks and other materials.
