THE F HOLMAN HOTEL
J. Conrad Dunagan's thoroughly researched history of The Holman Hotel in
far West Texas is much more than the story of a building. It is the story of
the adventurous, pioneering Holman family which settled in the tiny railroad
town of Monahans, Texas, built a hotel there, and produced a son, Eugene
Holman, who became head of the world's largest oil company-Standard Oil
of New Jersey. Designed by William R. Holman, and printed at Wind River
Press by David Holman, this handsome sixty-three page volume illustrated
with fourteen historic photographs, provides an interesting look at life in
turn-of-the-century West Texas.
