Talitha was built in 1930 for Russell Alger, Chairman of the Packard Car Company.

Mark Getty

Mark is heir to the Getty Oil fortune and founder of Getty Images.

Getty Oil Corporation

The company was founded in 1942 by his grandfather Jean Paul Getty Sr. Jean’s father George Getty was already active in the oil business. George started the Minnehoma Oil Company in 1904. In 1913, George lent his son Jean-Paul (then aged 21) money to invest in oil wells. Two years later Jean-Paul had made his first million and the following year George and Jean-Paul incorporated Getty Oil.

In the 1980s Getty Oil was sold to Texaco for US$ 8 billion.
