Business Magnate. He and his brother L.E. Phillips founded Phillips Petroleum company in 1917. Today this company is one of the largest employers in the city of Bartlesville, Oklahoma. During the early 1920's, Phillips Petroleum company began selling gasoline to the new airplane industry that was emerging in Wichita, Kansas.

Mr. Phillips loved nature, and one of his lasting treasures to the world is the country retreat he called Woolaroc, in the wooded Oklahoma hills.

Due to the entrepreneurship of Mr. Phillips and his brother many, many Phillips employees have had the opportunity to build good retirements in addition to living well. Rest In Peace Mr. Phillips.
