John D. Rockefeller Jr. Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

He was the only son among the five kids of Standard Oil co founder John D. Rockefeller and the daddy of the five renowned Rockefeller brothers. In biographies, he’s usually called “Junior” to differentiate him from his dad, “Senior”.

He later also became a manager at J. P. Morgan’s U.S. Steel business, which had been formed in 1901. Junior stepped down from both firms in 1910 within an effort to “purify” his continuing philanthropy from commercial and financial interests following the Hearst media conglomerate unearthed a bribery scandal involving John Dustin Archbold (the successor to Senior as head of Standard Oil) and two leading members of Congress. In April 1914, following an extended amount of industrial unrest, the Ludlow Massacre happened in a coal mine run by the Colorado Fuel and Iron (CF&I) business. Junior possessed a controlling interest in the business (40% of its stock) and sat on the board as an absentee manager. Many critics attributed Rockefeller for ordering the massacre. Margaret Sanger composed an assault bit in her magazine The Woman Rebel declaring, “But recall Ludlow! Recall the men as well as girls and kids who have been lost in order that John D. Rockefeller, Jr., might continue his distinguished career of charity and philanthropy as a patron of the Christian religion.” He was at the time being guided by William Lyon Mackenzie King as well as the leader public relations specialist, Ivy Lee. Junior additionally only at that time met together with the union organizer, Mary Harris “Mother” Jones and declared fault in his testimony. Mackenzie King was afterwards to state this testimony was the turning point in Junior’s life, re-establishing the standing of the family name; it also heralded a fresh age of industrial relations in the state (see below). During the Great Depression he developed and was the only financier of a massive office complex in midtown Manhattan, Rockefeller Center, and consequently became among the biggest real estate holders in NYC.
