Family Leadership in the Michigan Oil And Gas Association
Two of the Michigan oilpatch pioneer families and/or their companies
have furnished the Association with three or more chief elected
- The Miller brothers, C. John (1966-67), Clyde
E. (1976-77) and H. Jack (1988-89) all were President/Chairman of the
Board, making MOGA the only petroleum association (or maybe the only
association) in the nation to have three brothers elected to the head of
the organization. Michael J. Miller, C. John's son, was elected
Chairman of the Board for 2000 and 2001.
- The Myler family, because Muskegon Oil Company founder
Charles Myler never aspired to office, saw Muskegon Development
geologist Hugh D. Crider serve as MOGA President 1959 and 1960. Then
Muskegon Development's William C. Myler (son of Charles) was elected
MOGA President for 1968 and 1969, with the company's William C. Myler,
Jr. elected Chairman of the Board for 1998 and 1999.
