Grant Segall (au). In 1863 Rockefeller helped found an oil refining firm. Soon he bought out most of his partners. In 1870 he helped incorporate the Standard Oil Co. & soon began to buy up rivals. The firm branched out into pipelines, railroads, wells, & more, becoming the largest & most profitable corp. in the world & making Rockefeller the world’s richest -- & most hated -- man. He threatened, spied on, or stole trade secrets from his competitors. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Rockefeller’s monopoly violated fair bus. practices & broke it up in 1911. Yet Rockefeller was the biggest philanthropist of his day. He donated to inst. such as Spelman College, the Univ. of Chicago, & the Rockefeller Inst. for Medical Research. Juvenile audiences
