John D. Rockefeller, Sr. was once a large part of  daily life in Pocantico Hills, New York. The second graders in Mrs. Taverna's class have learned a great deal about him and we think he was an amazing man! We interviewed historians and his descendents. We read and read and read! We analyzed political cartoons about him and carefully examined his first ledger, Ledger A. We visited his home, Kykuit, in Pocantico Hills and the Rockefeller Archive Center. Now it's time for us to teach you what we know about one of the most interesting men in American history.

A special thanks to Dr. Erwin Levold
from the Rockefeller Archive Center for all of his expert help.
