HAROLD T. HOLDEN, or “H” as he is called by many, was born in Enid, Oklahoma. Although “H” was the first professional fine artist in the family, he comes from a family of creative and talented inventors and engineers. In 1915, his great- grandfather George Failing invented the machine that creates the bottle cap that is still used on beverages today. His grandfather, oil pioneer George E. Failing, invented the first portable drilling rig, as well as numerous drilling bits, still used in the industry. “H” credits his love of horses to his father who was an avid horseman.
