Celebrating the past, present, and future
Our annual Legends Dinner honors individuals who have made a lasting impact on the field of geology, the petroleum industry, or their community. This event celebrates their accomplishments and the past, present, and future of Earth sciences in Oklahoma.
About the event
Typically held in early November, this event honors individuals in three categories: Pioneer Legend, Historical Legend, and Living Legend. Honorees are nominated and selected by the OGF board and volunteers, and the event presents an opportunity to celebrate these individuals and their impact on their industry and community.
Since starting the Legends Dinner in 2007, we have honored 46 legends who have made an impact in Oklahoma.
Join us for our next dinner
2022 Legends Dinner
The 2022 Legends Dinner was held on November 3 at the Petroleum Club Event Center in Oklahoma City. Honorees were Pioneer Legend Clyde M. Becker (1882-1938), Historical Legend Clyde McKee Becker (1928-2006), Pioneer Legend Thomas N. Berry (1872-1946), Historical Legend Thomas E. Berry (1906-1977), and Living Legend Thomas C. Cronin. This outstanding event was attended by approximately 130 people. Accepting on behalf of the Becker family was grandson/son Clyde M. Becker, Jr. Accepting on behalf of Thomas N. Berry was son-in-law Dick Fischer, and Tom D. Berry accepted on behalf of his father, Thomas E. Berry. A highlight of the evening was the acceptance commentary of our very own Legend Tom Cronin, long-time Chair of the Oklahoma Geological Foundation.
Please plan on joining us November 2, 2023 when we will celebrate and honor the accomplishments of a new slate of Oklahoma oil and geoscience Legends.
