J. Paul Getty (1892-1976) Oil executive and was the son of an oil millionaire. Getty began buying and selling oil leases in Oklahoma in 1913. He acquired Pacific Western Oil Corp. in 1932 and soon gained control of several independent oil companies. He renamed his oil concern Getty Oil Co. in 1956. His most lucrative venture was a 60-year oil concession in Saudi Arabia.

He hit oil himself in 1916 and made his first million. Since a million dollars was some serious money in 1914, he was able to retire in luxury. After a couple years of living the life of the idle rich, he got back into the oil business. Both he and his father were very successful, and young J. Paul became even richer.

By the end of the 1920’s, his personal fortune had grown to more than three million dollars and J. Paul owned one third of Getty Oil Co. At his father’s death, J. Paul became president of of Getty Oil. During the 1930’s, he ventured into real estate and took control of Pacific Western Oil Corporation, a major oil company in California.

After World War II, J Paul Getty defied conventional wisdom and invested in the Middle East, buying oil rights in Saudi Arabia through deals with King Saud. This huge risk made him a billionaire, the richest man in the world.

He died at Sutton Place, his London estate, on June 6, 1976
