URI Library:
Between 1956 and 1960 citizens of Jamestown, R.I. successfully fought the construction of an oil refinery along Narragansett Bay. Commerce Oil Refining Corporation of New York and its executive vice president Harold M. Geller, with the backing of Gulf Oil and Lehman Brothers, attempted to build the refinery. Leading the opposition was Jamestown resident Dr. William Miner, who formed the Jamestown Protective Association and retained Attorney Cornelius C. Moore as counsel. The material in this collection was used by authors Mary Stearns McGaughan and Terrence F. McGaughan in writing their book, Dismissed With Prejudice: the Epic Battle Against Construction of an Oil Refinery in Jamestown, Rhode Island, published in 1994.
