Storyboard Text

  • Biography
  • And he'll have it! Selling snake oil may not be the best, but it's taught me good values i'll be sure to pass on.
  • One day, he'll grow up to own a monopoly over oil in the United States. Maybe he really did learn from his father!
  • He'll also found the Rockefeller foundation later on.
  • Oh, how I wish our son the best life.
  • Contributions
  • I created a very sucessful business that industrialized how we recieve goods. 
  • What he won't so easily admit is that many people didn't like his company's practices. Opponents called him corrupt after shady dealings with railroad companies, among other things.
  • What was once a luxury became a commodity thanks in part to my business.
  • This alleged corruption led into a "trust-busting" era marked by President Roosevelt breaking up multiple trust companies. The trust busting then linked to other events around the time period. Since everything is so interconnected, it's impossible to list all that he indirectly contributed to.
  • Legacy
  • This university is one of many J.D.R. helped fund.
  • He also contributed to the medical field, arts and education as a whole.
  • John D. Rockefeller was born on July 8th, 1939. He started working from a young age, doing everything from selling books to managing hay. After attending college and taking a business course, he started his company, Standard Oil, and became the first business trust. 
  • Since he owned the biggest oil company in the USA, he contributed said product to the masses. However, like many things during this time period, his business was also connected to others. Machines need oil to run, after all. His constant adaption to new environments meant he kept his business afloat for years.
  • Beyond contributing to the categories above, Rockefeller also created something called The Rockefeller foundation, which, according to their website, aims for "promoting the well-being of humanity throughout the world".
