Imperial Royalties Company
Item# 4711or

Imperial Royalties Companywas incorporated in Oklahoma in 1920, and was a statutory business trust engaged in a general oil and gas royalty business. The company had offices in Kansas City, Missouri and Tulsa, Oklahoma.

In 1934, the company accused Trustee John Horn (who has signed this piece), of misappropriating funds believed in excess of ten millions dollars. Claiming that he used these funds to acquire an estate (known as the Horn-Vincent-Russell Estate) in Mission Hills, the Imperial Royalties Company filed a claim against the property. However, the Johnson County Court dismissed the action against the property as its ownership was apparently filed in the name of Phoebe T. Horn, whowas not a defendant in the suit.

In 1937, the company’s assets were sold to the Toklan Royalty Company.
