Al-Ayyam Al-Jamilah is a twice-yearly magazine distributed to retired employees and adult children of the Saudi Aramco Enterprise. Much of the content is compiled from letters, articles, news clippings and photos submitted by its readers. The magazine often includes historic photos that shed light on life in the Saudi Aramco community during the early years. It also includes articles prepared by retirees touching on their past and the company's history. One issue features the Saudi Aramco Annuitants Reunion, held every other year since 1958. Other retiree reunions and gatherings are also covered.

This ca. 1890s cape, with hand-embroidered, gold-couched cord work and fine embroidery, all on ivory wool, passed down from Kathleen Ray Barger, the wife of pioneer company geologist Tom Barger, to her granddaughter Amelia Brown, an upand- coming couturier, who renewed its frayed lining in blue silk. Kathleen went on to a life in Saudi Arabia, where she’d dreamt of residing as a child.
