At the regular monthly noon meeting of the Dallas Petroleum Geologists on Monday, May 5, 1941, a motion was passed authorizing the president to appoint a committee to work on a project which would culminate in a bulletin on the geology of Dallas County, Texas, to be in printed form prior to the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to be held in Dallas, Texas from December 29, 1941 to January 3, 1942. Those members appointed to the general committee were Messrs. C. C. Albritton, Jr. of Southern Methodist University, Robert I. Seale of Schlumberger Well Surveying Corporation, Henry J. Morgan, Jr., of Atlantic Refining Company, John W. Clark of Magnolia Petroleum Company, and John Gillin of National Geophysical Company. At the same time, an editorial committee composed of L. W. MacNaughton, C. C. Albritton, and W. G. Meyer was formed. Dr. Albritton consented to serve as chairman of the general committee and it was mainly through his unselfish efforts that the bulletin was completed within the few months available.
