Here is the full story of the founding and growth of the American Shell companies in an interesting and entertaining history up to the mid 1950s. From the first modest beginnings in 1912 to the expansionist twenties, the discouraging thirties, the all-out years of WWII, and the prosperous period of postwar growth.
