Joe Alex Morris. Those Rockefeller brothers: an informal biography of five extraordinary young men

A quintuplet biography as the lives and careers of the five sons of John Davison Rockefeller, Jr., are presented, in the best public relations manner. John, III, Nelson, Winthrop, Laurance and David- and how they were brought up, how the Rockefeller name and fortune shaped all their days and how they have arrived at a program for the best use of an accumulated wealth. They are shown to be essentially ""good"" men and very much alive to their responsibility as world citizens. From the grandfather who made money, to a father who gave it away in important philanthropies, to their own widening interests in South America, Japan, etc.--this follows a third generation which is not betraying its trust and which is working at its good intentions of fitting a personal fortune into a modern industrial pattern. Health, housing, agriculture, aviation, national and international problems- all have time, effort, money and intelligence devoted to them while mistakes are added to experience for future concerns and all five brothers, with public service behind them, combine in their interests for projects of betterment. Personal touches throughout keep this from being sheer inventory and for a public which may want a behind the scenes picture of great wealth and its administrators and administration, this will fill in its own wealth of detail. -- Kikus review
