1925

CC Julian of Julian Petroleum committed suicide by poison on March 25, 1934, in Shanghai, China. He had resigned from his company in April 1925. Sale of the stock of the company he founded in Southern California was stopped on May 7, 1927, after his unscrupulous successors bilked investors out of an estimated $150 million, precipitating a local financial crisis.
