One of the wealthiest personalities to inhabit this planet, John Davison Rockefeller was an oil business tycoon and philanthropist. He was easily the most affluent American of all time. Rockefeller’s breakthrough moment appeared when he concentrated on refining instead of drilling for oil field. As a result of the rise in the consumption of kerosene and gasoline, there was an exponential rise in Rockefeller’s wealth. Along with his contemporary Andrew Carnegie (steel magnate), he revolutionized the power, automobile, petroleum and railway industry. Being an active supporter of social Darwinism and capitalism, he summed up his success by stating that the growth of a large business is merely a survival of the fittest. Along with the foundation of the Standard Oil Company, he also established General Education Board, University of Chicago and Rockefeller University. Besides funding the Central Philippine University, Rockefeller made huge monetary contribution to his charitable institution (Rockefeller Foundation).
