Product Overview

This collection of never-before-published letters traces the history of the transfer of the Rockefeller fortune over the course of fifty years. It illustrates how the endowment was bestowed from Senior to Junior with respect, sound advice, and mutual trust. The missives are filled with news of family matters and personal wishes constituting a record of the Rockefeller family values which, in turn, inspired the philanthropies of Junior. Outlined in these letters is the conception for the Rockefeller Foundation, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, and the General Education Board. Later would follow the realization of Fort Tryon Park, the Rockefeller Center, Riverside Church, and the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg.
