David Perkins Float Trip Photos


Thanks to the family of David Albin Perkins (1914-2003), we have recieved 33 photos of a Jim Owen float trip down the White River in October of 1952. David worked for the Phillips Petroleum Company in Bartlesville, Oklahoma at the time, as a purchasing agent.

Jim Owen was a promoter and he continually contacted, government agencies, movie stars, and large businesses trying to organize float trips. It looks like this trip was sponsered by McCormick Armstrong, who was possibly a supplier to Pillips Petroleum.

This is the famous Jim Owen.
