More Description


An article in the April 14, 1986 issue of "Fortune" listed six men as having been elected that year to the U.S. Business Hall of Fame. One of the laureates was Robert O. Anderson of Roswell, New Mexico. "Starting at age 24 with borrowed cash", the story states, "Anderson pieced together Atlantic Richfield, today the sixth-largest oil company in the U.S. . . . As a sideline he became the largest individual landowner in the U.S., at one point holding some 2,000 square miles a million-plus acres] of ranchland in New Mexico and Texas".
