1929. Winkler writes that John D. Rockefeller and his Standard Oil Trust have provoked a literature and litigation of their own. In this overwhelming mass of material, Rockefeller the Man is but a shadowy myth. This study seeks chiefly to illumine a rare and astonishing personality. It includes, therefore, only such portions of our subject's long and serried business career as seem essential to our purpose. Contents: A Strange Pilgrim and His Son; A Pious Youth Gets a Flying Start; A Godly Young Man Strikes Oil; A Refiner Marches Toward Monopoly; A Business Genius Makes the World Pay Tribute; The Malevolent Trust-Raking In a Billion; The Benevolent Trust-Ladling Out the Billion; John D. Jr., a Character Sketch; John D., III, the Clan's Future Chieftain, an Intimate Portrait; and John D. at Ninety. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
