  • Notes 
    • “[Lewis] was raised in El Paso and after graduating from Austin High School, in El Paso, he enrolled at Texas School of Mines.

      “When World War II started he was drafted and served in the Army in the Engineering and Topographic Company. Lewis was stationed in England, France, and Germany during the War. After the war he returned to Texas. He graduated from The University of Texas with a degree in Geology. His first job was in Midland, Texas where he met J. Kathryn Kay Kendrick. They were married on June 15, 1951, in Midland. Lewis worked for the Atlantic Refining Company out of Roswell, New Mexico, as well as Lake Charles, Louisiana, before he returned to Midland and went to work for Joseph O'Neill as his chief geologist. While with O'Neill, he met Jack Huff and in early 1959, they started Burleson and Huff. They worked as partners until 1979, which was when Lewis started Lewis B. Burleson, Inc. Lewis was a long time member of First Presbyterian Church, where he and Kay were married. He was also active in the AAPG, as well as a member of the AAPG Foundation. He was also active in the Exchange Club of Midland.

      “Lewis especially liked going on Wednesday nights to his golf and dinner group. He also loved going to his Ranch in Christoval with his family. In recent years he funded the Kathryn Burleson Fund in the School of Human Sciences at Texas Tech University.” [2]
