long as I can re member Ive heard it argued whether the enormous wealth of family could much good to the Rockefeller have brought as as many if it had been left in the hands of the tributed to it millions who con In the beginning at least the Rockefeller riches came mostly from petroleum in the form of kerosene The original John D of course was a very rich man probably the worlds richesl man when the horseless car riage came into being Kerosene in those days meant ever so much more than gasoline and the market was pretty much in Rockefellers control a mo nopoly In theory at least the Rocke feller wealth wouldnt have been built up if the petroleum prod ucts turned out by the giant cor poration headed by him had been priced tower than they were And that gives us our question Would the benefits thus spread out among the millions who pur chased kerosene have been as great in the aggregate as the benefits which have resulted from the largescale research projects endowments and philanthropies financed and administered by the Rockefeller Foundation One Answer For All It follows of course that if we could find the answer to the question as it applies to the Rockefeller wealth

every instance 1 When the wealth of one gen eration has been passed down in tact to a second or a third gen eration there has almost without exception been a disintegration of the estate 2 When those blessed with great wealth have felt a respons ibility to use it for the common good and the advancement of humanity the estate has had a tendency to perpetuate itself Some Vanishing Names Perhaps I
