Walk-in (all ages) As Americans continue to debate the present and future of the oil industry, their discussions can be informed by knowledge of its past. This presentation will examine the advent of the seismograph and its role in changing the scale and scope of oil exploration worldwide. The seismograph's 100-year history is one of rapidly evolving technology and competing interests in science and industry. This program presented in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council.
