From The Publisher
Cushing boomed out of the Sac and Fox lands nearly overnight with the development of the oil fields in that area. Mrs. Wells accurately documented the exciting boom times in Cushing, and its founding in 1891.

The development of its profitable oil field during the 1910ís resulted in the establishment of 710 wells producing 72,000,000 barrels of oil annually by 1915. Cushing mushroomed in population and services to keep pace.
