Philip Anschutz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (852 words)
His grandfather, Carl Anschutz (born November 10, 1859, in the Province of Samara), emigrated from Russia and started the Farmers State Bank in Russell, Kansas.
Anschutz grew up in Hays, Kansas, the location of his father's oil-exploration business, Circle A Drilling, where he lived just down the road from Bob Dole.
In the early 1980s, the Anschutz Ranch, with its 1 billion barrel (160,000,000 m³) oil pocket, became the largest oil field discovery in the United States since Prudhoe Bay in Alaska in 1968.
