10 year's ago today, Chevron completed its purchase of Unocal (Union 76). I remember the day well,
as it was my daughter's 25th birthday. I spent almost 28 years with Union, working right up to the end.
My wife's grandfather started with Union in 1905. I still have difficulty filling up at Chevron stations
today. Below is a picture of the final trading day of Union's stock. Also below is a copy of the cover of
Union's history book, from 1890 to 1990. I managed to rescue a few of these when I left, and I offered
them for free 10 years ago. That offer is good today --- just pm me your address, and I'll send you a copy.

Many thanks to Dan for generously sending me a copy of this great history book. If you are a Union collector, it should be in your library if it isn't already. I was surprised that Dan shared with me I was the only person initially that responded to his offer. The book is loaded with great photos, and goes along great with "The 76 Bonanza" book from 1966.
Thanks again Dan, it looks like a good read,
Darin
