A 1966 business graduate and recipient of an honorary doctorate in 1989, David B.
Orser is a former president of Occidental Oil International and an independent businessman
working with oil claims in the Middle East. He has over 25 years of experience working
in the oil industry and another 10 years as a consultant for companies including GE

He returned to Montana after retiring.
Born in Pryor, Montana, David Orser went to school at MSU. He earned a bachelor’s

Orser has served on the Museum of the Rockies National Board of Directors, as a Montana
