Happy Birthday John D. Rockefeller, Jr.! –Countdown: 23 Days
August 02, 2012
Okay, so August 2nd isn't actually John D. Rockefeller, Jr.'s birthday, but he WAS born on a Thursday!
Junior, as he was affectionately known, was born on January 29th, 1874 in Cleveland, Ohio. He was the fifth child and only son of John D. Rockefeller, Sr., America's first billionaire.
If JDR Jr. will still alive, he would be 138 years old! In the 52 years since he passed (in 1960), the world has changed in many ways. Given his deep interest in conservation, public health, art, and world heritage, what are some modern causes that John D. Rockefeller, Jr. may have championed if he were still alive today?
Did You Know?
Did you know that pronghorns are the fastest mammals in the western hemisphere? They can run up to 70 mph, but do not like to jump fences! In the summer, pronghorn live along Antelope Flats Road, but in fall they migrate almost 200 miles to central Wyoming.
