George Mitchell, Texas oil man, real estate developer, and one of Houston's wealthiest businessmen, died Friday in Galveston, a spokeswoman said. He was 94.



The son of a poor Greek immigrant, Mitchell had an uncanny knack for finding oil.

During his career, he participated in drilling some 8,000 wells, including more than 1,000 wildcats.
