    John L. Ward
As grandson of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller Sr. and son of philanthropist John D. Jr., Winthrop Rockefeller was born into one of the most affluent and influential families in the world. But he was a nonconformist and often felt isolated from the rest of the family. Still, he amazed many when he left the New York elite for a farm in rural Arkansas, where he would ultimately serve two terms as governor and create a philanthropic legacy all his own. In this book John L. Ward draws from his years as Rockefeller's speech writer and campaign advisor to create a remarkably readable and comprehensive narrative. Ward provides valuable insights into Rockefeller's complicated relationships with his father and brothers and convincingly argues that Rockefeller's extraordinarily innovative approach to philanthropy changed the way Arkansas was viewed by its citizens and by the rest of the world.
