Bill Keller, son of Chevron CEO
NEW YORK TIMES (4/11/99): Emma Gilbey, an author and journalist, was married yesterday to Bill Keller, the managing editor of The New York Times. The Rev. Robert J. Kennedy performed the ceremony at the Holy Name of Jesus Roman Catholic Church in Manhattan.[As a dear friend pointed out, this is a nugget of Keller's bio that seems to evade allusion whenever he's in the news.]
Ms. Gilbey, 38, is keeping her name. She is the author of "The Lady: The Life andTimes of Winnie Mandela" (Jonathan Cape, 1993). The bride graduated from King's College of London University.
She is the daughter of Anthony J. Gilbey of Wangford, England, and the late Lenore Gilbey. The bride's father is the chairman of Gilbey Collections, a London company that commissions limited edition commemorative items. Her mother was a journalist.
Mr. Keller, 50, graduated from Pomona College. He is the son of Adelaide and George M. Keller of San Mateo, Calif. The bridegroom's father retired as the chairman and chief executive of the Chevron Corporation in San Francisco.
[Condoleeza] Rice has served on the board of directors for the Chevron Corporation, the Charles Schwab Corporation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Transamerica Corporation, Hewlett Packard, The Carnegie Corporation, The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, The Rand Corporation, and KQED, public broadcasting for San Francisco.Ships of Chevron
She was also on the Board of Trustees of the University of Notre Dame, the International Advisory Council of J.P. Morgan, and the San Francisco Symphony Board of Governors.
She also headed Chevron's committee on public policy until she resigned on January 15, 2001, to become National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush. Chevron honored Rice by naming an oil tanker Condoleezza Rice after her, but controversy led to its being renamed Altair Voyager. wikipedia

Washington Post: A White House document shows that executives from big oil companies met with Vice President Cheney's energy task force in 2001 -- something long suspected by environmentalists but denied as recently as last week by industry officials testifying before Congress.
...the Government Accountability Office has found that Chevron was one of several companies that "gave detailed energy policy recommendations" to the task force. Also here, here.

"Chevron, which grew out of Standard Oil of California, got its first concession in Saudi Arabia in 1933 and opened its first office in the country in 1934, Robertson said." U.S. President George W. Bush's desire to cut U.S. dependence on Middle East oil shows a "misunderstanding" of global energy supply, the vice chairman of Chevron said.

George Keller also tackled the subject of free trade when the World Trade Club gave him this award eleven years ago. I read over the speech George gave back then and, once again, I was amazed at how little things have changed.
For instance . . .
George emphasized the need to find as much new oil as possible within the U.S. and elsewhere to reduce our dependence on imported oil. That still rings true today.
George also noted that our appalling trade imbalance at that time was due to two things -- lack of competitiveness among U.S. businesses and restrictive government policies.
Well, we've pretty much taken care of the first problem. 1998 speech by Kenneth Derr, CEO, Chevron.
Chevron - an inverted ‘V’ on a shield, symbolizes protection. Protection granted as a reward to one who has achieved some notable service. Said to represent the rooftree of a house, and has sometimes been given to those who hae built churches or fortresses or who have accomplished work of faithful service. Stavely GenealogyChevron
