George R. Brown

George Brown complemented his brother's construction expertise with his business acumen. Known as an idea man, George joined the company in 1922 and helped it gain its "can-do" reputation by negotiating many successful government industrial design and construction projects around the world. Following World War II, the company applied its considerable expertise to oil industry projects. The most interesting project was Project Mohole intended to probe the earth's crust. Not only did this create the technology for deep well drilling, but its contributions to deep water drilling, station keeping, riser behavior and semisubmersible hull design was immeasurable.
