Glenn McCarthy

Glenn H. McCarthy Jr. received the B.B.A. degree from Sam Houston State in 1962, and the juris doctor degree from South Texas College of Law in 1967. He began his law practice that year, working first in general law then specializing in real estate and oil and gas law.

His career in the oil and gas industry began before he finished high school, and he became president of McCarthy Oil and Gas Corporation in 1959. During its existence the corporation's exploration efforts have yielded over 800 producing wells and discovered 16 new oil and gas fields and 15 major extensions of existing oil and gas fields.

McCarthy also served as president and principal owner of MTH Construction Company and served as vice president, president and chairman of the board of Tenroc Corporation.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has named him a "Legend of the Oil Industry."

He is a member of numerous professional law and petroleum industry organizations, and he enjoys reading, hunting, fishing and flying.
