Dean McGee

With his partner, Senator Robert Kerr, Dean McGee built Kerr-McGee into a prosperous Oklahoma-based independent oil company before World War II. When opportunity beckoned offshore in the Gulf of Mexico after the war, McGee and Kerr bet their company's future on the new offshore industry. Among their pioneering ventures was the construction and operation of Kermac 16, the platform which produced the first oil from a structure out of sight of land in the Gulf of Mexico in November, 1947.
