The Rockefeller family is an American industrial, banking, and political
family of German origin that made one of the worlds largest private
fortunes in the oil business during the late 19th and early 20th century,
primarily through the Standard Oil Company. The family is also known for
its long association with and financial interest in the Chase Manhattan
Bank, now JP Morgan Chase. They are generally seen as one the most powerful
families inside the United States and are well connected to the banking
industry. For decades, the Rockefeller name was despised in
America–associated with John D. Rockefeller Sr.s feared monopoly, Standard
Oil. By the end of his life, Rockefeller had given away half his
fortune–but even his vast philanthropy could not erase the memory of his
predatory business practices. His only son, John D. Rockefeller Jr.,
would dedicate his life to recasting the family image. In the quest for
redemption and respectability, Junior would give away hundreds of millions
of dollars, and would insist that his six children behave impeccably.
Their contributions transformed America. When he died at age 86, Junior
left his six children and 22 grandchildren an invaluable inheritance: a
name which stood not for corporate greed, but for the well-being of
mankind. I do not claim any copyrights or any other rights I simply upload
