Image of Robert Peary as he would have looked when he explored the North Pole.

At about the time Peary was exploring above the Earth's surface, Howard Hughes, Sr., was exploring below the Earth's surface.  Learning about mining, Hughes soon realized how difficult it was to remove natural resources from underground.

When oil was discovered in Texas, Hughes, Sr. went there.  His experiences in the oil fields helped him to think about something that would make life easier for oil explorers.
