Businessman: Kenneth "Boots" Adams, started working for the Phillips Petroleum Company in 1920 as a clerk in the warehouse department. Twelve years later he was chosen by founder and president Frank Phillips to fill the newly created position of Assistant to the President. Six years later he was elected president of Phillips 66 at age 38, one of the nation's youngest corporation heads. In 1964 after 44 years with the company he retired as a Phillips employee but continued as Board Chairman.

When he was three years old he received a pair of black leather boots with red tops. He liked them so much he didn't want to take them off even to go to bed. Neighbors, family and friends started calling him "Boots" and the name stuck!
