Welcome to Long Beach Petroleum Club
Have you ever wondered just how the Petroleum Club happened to be? It really wasn't a happening, it was the dream of two men.
How that dream became a reality will be briefly outlined as nearly as available records and memory will permit.
Having a Petroleum Club in Long Beach was the idea of Lee Foust and C.L. "Slim" Fowler which developed in the steam room of the Pacific Coast Club one week during the Summer of 1954. They had discussed the thought many times before, but it was on this particular occasion that they decided to do something about it.
