about

This book, a part of the Oxford Portraits series, will chronicle the life of John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937), one of the quintessential American robber barons, a textbook example of Gilded Age entrepreneurship and greed. The book will discuss Rockefeller's life from his childhood beginnings inbusiness to his rise to power and wealth with the Standard Oil Company, the anti-trust struggle, his huge personal fortune and philanthropy, and his large extended family who carried on his name and philanthropic interests. Back matter consists of chronology, further reading, and index.
