Storyboard Text

  • Well, let's start from the beginning, I was born in 1939 and I grew up in New York, but I moved to Ohio in 1953.
  • Notes gathered from Rockefeller...
  • NOTES FROM ROCKEFELLER: -He was born in 1839 and raised in New York before him and his family moved to Ohio in 1853. -He started working at age 16, as an office clerk. - In 1859, Rockefeller and his partner started their own business.  - He entered the Oil Industry in 1863 after partnering with others to invest in a Cleveland 'refinery'. - Rockefeller married Laura Celestia Spelman in 1864.
  • -Rockefeller opened Standard Oil in 1870. - Rockefeller had 5 kids, 4 daughters and 1 son. - Rockefeller established Standard Oil along side his brother and Henry Flager. - John D. Rockefeller was the president and largest share holder of the company. - He reached the top of the industry after making some money and using it to buy other companies. This was a way of gaining monopolies, in addition to branching the company out to other industries and distribution of products across the world. - Many workers thought that Standard Oil and Rockefeller was a "Robber Baron".
  • Wait, before you go, please, tell me the truth behind your story.
  • And that was my story. 
  • Er. What do you mean?
  • Thank you for your time, Mr. Rockefeller. It was an honor meeting you. 
  • You don't have a project to do. Please, tell me your story.
  • No, I understand. Ida Tarbell did say that there was no other man as patient as me.
  • After telling the story to Rockefeller... 
  • My, what an awkward story. I guess I best allow you to leave. Have a safe trip home.
  • You are not angry at us? 
  • Thank god. Good luck with your business.
  • The book you are developing on Standard Oil, please do not release it until 1904.
  • We can go home now.
  • Ah, children, you are back. I assume everything went well.
  • It did. Thank you. In return, we want you to copy down the notes we took so we can set history on the right track. 
  • Of course, I wouldn't want too disturb the course of time.
  • Hold very still and smile.
  • Wait. I have a friend who would love to take a picture of us. As a memorabilia, to put in the book. With Mr. Rockefeller.
