This corporate lawyers specializes in the energy industry and financing corporate and civic deals. In this latter capacity, Oxford was a cheerleader for a ’96 initiative in which Houston-area voters narrowly voted to build a $265 million new stadium for the Houston Astros and renovate the old Astrodome to try to attract an NFL team to replace the departing Oilers (see Pioneer Bob Corker). Oxford led a team of lawyers who donated $225,000 worth of pro bono aide to help Houston host the ’92 Republican National Convention. He was the Houston-area chair of Bush’s ’98 reelection campaign after Bush appointed him as a University of Texas Regent in ‘97. In this role, Oxford joined the board of the University of Texas Investment Management Co. (UTIMCO) in ‘99 to fill vacancies created by the departure of two of Bush’s all-time biggest donors: Tom Hicks (see Pioneer brother R. Steven Hicks) and Pioneer Tom Loeffler. A scandal ensued at UTIMCO during their tenure when the media revealed its board had awarded lucrative investment contracts to cronies of Hicks and to top Bush donors such as Pioneers Charles Wyly and Lee Bass.
