Early Core Drilling in New Mexico
Hobart Haggard worked for Midwest Refining Company on a core drill crew from the mid-1920's to the early 1930's.  He was hired in Wyoming and worked in New Mexico, Kansas and Texas.  He worked around the Carlsbad, New Mexico area and probably also around Hobbs and Artesia.  He later went to work for Stanolind Oil and Gas Company in the production department. 

A special thank you to Bob Haggard for the use of the photos shown below.
