John D. Rockefeller
John Davison Rockefeller Sr. is an American business magnate and philanthropist. He is considered by many to be the richest American of all time and the richest man in modern history. Rockefeller was born into a large family in upstate New York, who moved several times before settling in Cleveland, Ohio. He became an accountant assistant at the age of 16 and entered a number of business partnerships from the age of 20, focusing on the refining business. Rockefeller founded the Standard Oil Company in 1870. He ran it until 1897 and remained a major shareholder of the company. Rockefeller's wealth exploded as oil and gasoline grew in importance, and he became the richest man in the country, controlling 90% of all oil in the United States at its peak. Petroleum was used across the country as a source of light until electricity, and as a fuel after the invention of the automobile.
