John D. Rockefeller

Oil Refinery Industry


John D. Rockefeller was a medium sized built man. He had very light blonde hair. When he was younger he had a mustache, but shaved it off for reasons unknown.

Biographical information

Rockefeller was born July 8, 1839 in Richford New York. At a very young age John started working around the neighborhood trying to earn money for his family. By the time he was 14 he had enough saved up that he could move his family down to Cleveland Ohio. At the age of 23 he invested in his very first oil refinery in Cleveland Ohio. Within two years it was the largest refinery in the area.

Man of the Year

I would say John D. Rockefeller is Man of the Year. He donates to $500 million a year to a lot of different Philanthropic Causes. His very first check went to his church in Cleveland Ohio, a foreign mission, and to the poor.

He treats his workers like they are family. He wants to make them feel like they are apart of his family no matter what. He gives them paid vacations, because he feels like they do a really good job. John even gets his hands dirty and helps them out in the fields. He definitely deserves the award for Man of the Year.


He should be awarded with the Key to the City. A lot of people seem to love him, and he you can tell he cares a lot about his entire community. They are all like family to him.
