UPA has published a major portion of the John D. Rockefeller Sr. papers covering the years of his rise--1877-1894. Researchers of the history of business, society, education, and philanthropy will find the papers a gold mine of documentation in all these areas during two decades of rapid change. Part 1: Business Correspondence, 1877-1893 is comprised primarily of Standard Oil Company material. The scope is broad: oil production, refining, sales, financing, transportation, personnel questions, the committee structure of the firm, and the various subsidiaries and competitors. Part 1 also includes periodic summaries of Rockefeller's income and obligations.
