This vintage Pan American Sulphur Company stock certificate from Delaware in the 1960s is a unique piece of history worth adding to your collection. Measuring 12" x 8", this certificate represents a significant moment when Pan American Sulphur Company was founded in 1947 to take advantage of the discovery of sulphur reserves in Mexico. Founded with an initial investment of $310,000 by the Little Mothers Club, which included prominent Texas oil millionaires like Roland S. Bond and Buddy Fogelson, the company quickly found sulphur in the nearby land and expanded its holdings. The Korean War increased demand for sulphur, making Pan Am an attractive selling proposition. However, potential buyers like Freeport Sulphur and Texas Gulf Sulphur declined offers, leading PASCO to retain its valuable sulphur field. The strategic location of PASCO's sulphur field on the Isthmus provided numerous advantages, such as proximity to key resources like water and fuel oil, as well as access to transportation infrastructure. This setup, combined with the unique Frasch process utilized for mining sulphur, positioned PASCO for success in the industry.
