Benton Baugh was born and raised in Houston, where he decided he wanted to be an engineer. After graduating from the University of Houston, Baugh nearly went to work for NASA in 1965, but delays in acquiring a security clearance pushed him towards working for Camco and Cameron in the offshore petroleum industry. At Cameron, Baugh installed computer hardware on drilling rigs. After about five years, Baugh went to work for Vetco Offshore (AS Ventura Tool Company), and was the firm’s third Houston employee hired. Nine years later, Baugh started his own consulting firm, Baugh Consulting Engineers, where he remains active at the time of interview. Interviewer: Tyler Priest.
