 RETIRED CHEVRON VICE CHAIRMAN J. E. GOSLINE DIES
 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- James E. Gosline, retired


vice chairman of Chevron Corporation, died Sunday at age 83 from a stroke.
 Gosline was born Nov. 18, 1908, in Carnegie, Pa., and spent much of his youth associated with the oil industry. He grew up in the oil towns of central California and worked in the oil fields during high school and college summer vacations.
 Gosline was a 1930 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and received a doctorate in petroleum engineering in 1933. In addition, he was an instructor in the mechanical engineering department at Berkeley.
 He joined Chevron's predecessor, Standard Oil of California, in 1933 as an engineer in the general engineering department, and in 1954 was named head of producing. In 1958 he was named a vice president of The California Company, a Standard subsidiary with rapidly expanding offshore oil operations. In 1960, he was appointed president of Standard Oil Co. of Texas, another subsidiary with extensive producing activities.
 Gosline was elected a vice president of the parent Standard of California organization in 1962, a director of the company in 1964, president in 1966 and vice chairman in 1969. He retired in 1973.
 In lieu of flowers, the Gosline family asks that donations be sent to the University of California San Francisco Foundation. Gosline served as a founding member of the foundation's board of trustees.
 Gosline, a resident of Marin and Live Oak, is survived by his wife, Lola Marie, and three nieces and four nephews.
 Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Monday, Aug. 24, at St. John's Episcopal Church in Ross.
