Biography | show moreshow less
William Rockefeller (1841-1922) was the younger brother of John D. Rockefeller, and the two were a formidable team; John was a capable organizer while William was a salesman and promoter. A member of the original Standard Oil Trust (dissolved in the Ohio courts in 1890), William played a leading role in the Standard Oil mergers of the 1870s and the absorptions of Standard Oil of New Jersey. William, who also invested in railroad and gas companies, was not philanthropic like his brother. Upon his death in 1922 at the age of 81, William's fortune was estimated between $150 million to $200 million, a large part of it being in Standard Oil securities, but he left no charitable bequests; his estate went to his four children.
