Dr. Osterlin's 80th Birthday
FINDLAY, O., Oct. 5 - [Special] -
Dr. Charles Osterlin, the man who first advanced the theory that
natural gas existed in immense quantities beneath this city, and
through whose efforts the Findlay natural gas company was organized,
celebrated the 80th anniversary of his birth today. The
discovery of natural gas at this point was also the first step taken
in the development of the northwestern Ohio oil field. Dr.
