THE ROCKEFELLERS: ART OF GIVING
When my parents married on October 9, 1901, the press headlined it as the union of the two most powerful families in America; the son and heir of John D. Rockefeller and the daughter of Nelson Aldrich, Republican majority leader in the U.S. Senate and, according to some, “the General Manager of the Nation.”
That Father did make Mother happy, and she him, I have no doubt…. Mother brought to Father and the marriage a sense of joy and fun that he desperately needed.
