Fifty years and still going strong ///

Don DePugh recently achieved a record here at Gulf Publishing: 50 continuous years of service. Don earned a liberal arts degree in English from St. Thomas University. He began working at Gulf Publishing shortly thereafter in December 1958 and has remained here ever since. Although Don set the record, longevity at Gulf Publishing is not unique to him. Bob Scott, World Oil editor in 1968, then publisher and CEO, gave us 41 years; Sam Sorrell, who was Don’s mentor in advertising and sales worldwide, stayed 37 years; and Bob Rust, also known as Mr. Composite Catalog, was an icon at GPC for 45 years.
