John Davison Rockefeller (1839-1937), grandfather of former
Vice-President Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, and David Rockefeller (head
of the Chase Manhattan Bank) was the richest man of his time. He started
out in 1859 as a produce merchant, turning to oil in 1865, at the age of
26. In 1870, when Standard Oil of Ohio was incorporated, Rockefeller
controlled 21 out of 26 refineries in Cleveland. By 1871, Standard Oil
was the largest refining company in the world. In 1879, he controlled
over 90% of all refined oil sold in the country, with 20,000 producing
wells, and 100,000 employees. In 1884, he moved his main office to New
York City; and by 1885, Standard Oil virtually controlled the entire oil
industry in the United States, and had set up branches in Western Europe
The Rockefellers and Rothschilds have been partners ever since the
1880's, when Rockefeller was able to get a rebate on each barrel of oil
he shipped over the Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio railroads, which
were owned by Kuhn, Loeb and Co.
In 1888, details concerning the Rockefeller Oil Trust began to leak out
in the newspapers. In Ohio, at the time, a company within the state
could not own stock in a company in another state, which occurred when
Rockefeller bought out smaller companies. Using the secret Trust, which
was established in 1879, the trustees for the companies that had been
taken over, the 37 Standard Oil stockholders, and Standard Oil of Ohio,
relayed all out-of-state subsidiary stock to three clerks from Standard
Oil. In 1882, the three "dummy" trustees, 42 Standard Oil stockholders,
and Standard Oil of Ohio, transferred all its stock to nine trustees,
who were controlled by Rockefeller. In March, 1892, the Ohio Supreme
Court ordered Standard Oil to withdraw from the Trust, after Ohio and
other states outlawed trusts. Rockefeller countered by moving Standard
Oil to New Jersey, who allowed their corporations to hold stock in
out-of-state companies, thus, Standard Oil of New Jersey became that
In 1889, Rockefeller helped establish, with a grant of $600,000, the
University of Chicago. He promised to support the school for ten years,
which he did, donating $34,708,375. In 1901, he incorporated the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research (now Rockefeller University),
with a grant of $200,000. In 1903, he established the Rockefeller
General Education Board, which he donated $42 million to, within a
two-year period (and $129 million in total). The Board was organized by
Fred Gates, the front man for the Pillsbury flour company. In 1909, the
Rockefeller Sanitation Commission was established, to which he gave $1
Rockefeller's goal was for Standard Oil to be the world's only refining
company, and to that end, it was alleged that he blew up a competitor's
refinery in Buffalo, New York. He owned large blocks of stock in quite a
few newspapers, including the Buffalo People's Journal, the Oil City
Derrick (in Pennsylvania), the Cleveland Herald, and the Cleveland News
Leader. He had contracts with over 100 newspapers in Ohio, to print news
releases and editorials furnished by a Standard Oil-controlled agency,
in return for advertisement.
He 'owned' several New Jersey and Ohio state legislators. Rep. Joseph
Sibley, of Pennsylvania, was President of the Rockefeller-controlled
Galena Signal Oil Co.; and in 1898, Rep. John P. Elkins, also of
Pennsylvania, accepted a $5,000 bribe from Standard Oil. In 1904, Sen.
Bois Penrose of Pennsylvania received a $25,000 bribe from Rockefeller,
and Sen. Cornelius Bliss received $100,000. Others who received Standard
Oil bribes: Sen. Matthew Quay (PA), Sen. Joseph B. Foraker (OH), Sen.
Joseph Bailey (TX), Sen. Nathan B. Scott, Sen. Mark Hanna (OH), Sen.
Stephen B. Elkins (WV), Rep. W. C. Stone (PA), and Sen. McLaurin (SC).
President William McKinley, through Sen. Mark Hanna, was a pawn of
Standard Oil and the bankers.
The 'rebates' Rockefeller received from various railroads, were actually
kickbacks. These rebates made it possible for him to keep his prices
lower so he could bankrupt his competition. He said: "Competition is a
sin." Standard Oil also made kickbacks, in the form of stock, to
railroad people, such as William H. Vanderbilt, who received stock
without contributing any capital, as did various bankers who lent money
freely to Standard Oil.
Willie Winkfield, a Rockefeller messenger, sold evidence of
Rockefeller's bribery to William Randolph Hearst's New York American,
for $20,500, and Hearst revealed the information at election time, in an
attempt to get the Rockefeller stooges out of office. In 1905, an exposť
by Ida M. Tarbell, called The History of Standard Oil Co., which came on
the heels of an 1894 book by Henry Demarest Lloyd, called Wealth Against
Commonwealth, began to turn public opinion against Standard Oil.
Robert M. LaFollette, Sr., in a speech to the Senate in March, 1908,
said that fewer than 100 men controlled the business interests of the
country. However, a few years later, through an analysis of the
Directory of Directors, it was discovered that through interlocking
directorates, less than a dozen men controlled the country's business
interests. Most notable were Rockefeller and Morgan.
In March, 1910, Sen. Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island, introduced a Bill
of Incorporation for the Rockefeller Foundation, but it came at a time
when there was an antitrust suit against Standard Oil, and the Bill was
withdrawn. On May 15, 1911, Standard Oil was found to be in violation of
the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, and the U.S. Supreme Court ordered,
in a 20,000 word decision, the breakup of Standard Oil of New Jersey.
The Court said that Standard Oil wanted to establish a monopoly in order
"to drive others from the field and exclude them from their right to
trade," and that "seven men and a corporate machine have conspired
against their fellow citizens. For the safety of the Republic, we now
decree that the dangerous conspiracy must be ended..."
Standard Oil was forced to dissolve into 38 separate companies,
including Standard Oil of Indiana (Amoco), Standard Oil of Ohio (Sohio),
Standard Oil of Louisiana, Standard Oil of New Jersey (Exxon, which is
one of the largest corporations in the world, controlling 321 other
companies, including Humble Oil and Venezuela's Creole Oil), Standard
Oil of New York (Socony or Mobil); and others such as Continental Oil (Conoco),
Atlantic-Richfield (Arco), Gulf, Phillips 66, Texaco, and Marathon Oil,
which were also Rockefeller-controlled companies. Rockefeller owned 25%
of Standard Oil of New Jersey, which meant that he now owned 25% of all
38 Standard Oil subsidiaries. In 1914, the Congressional Record referred
to Standard Oil as the "shadow government" and as the extent of its
holdings became known, its value tripled.
In May, 1913, after three years of Congressional opposition, the New
York State Legislature voted to establish the Rockefeller Foundation
(which was located in the Time-Life Building), "to promote the
well-being of mankind throughout the world." However, a 1946 report
stated that the "challenge of the future is to make this one world." The
endowment to establish the Foundation totaled $182,851,000, and was
given in securities, enabling the foundation to disperse over $1
billion, even though it is only third in total assets compared to the
Ford and Johnson Foundations.
In 1899, with an estimated wealth of $200,000,000, Rockefeller
"retired." But, only in regard to being involved in the day-to-day
operation of the company. He didn't officially retire until 1911, when
he resigned as President of Standard Oil. He had become America's first
billionaire, yet when he died, he only left a taxable estate of
$26,410,837.10, which after Federal and State taxes were levied, left
about $16 million. The remainder of his fortune had been left to
surviving relatives ($240 million), his sons ($465 million), and his
Rockefeller, said to own 20% of American industry, between 1855 and his
death in 1937, gave away nearly $550 million. In 1855, when he was 16,
he gave $2.77 of his meager earnings to charity, 1856 ($19.31), 1857
($28.37), 1858 ($43.85), 1859 ($72.22), 1860 ($107.35), 1861 ($259.97),
1865 ($1,012), 1869 ($5,000), 1871 ($6,860), 1879 ($29,000), 1880
($32,865), 1884 ($119,000), 1891 ($500,000), 1892 ($1,500,000), 1893
($1,472,122), 1907 ($39,170,480), 1909 ($71,453,231), 1913
($45,499,367), 1914 ($67,627,095), and 1919 ($138,624,574). He gave
$182,851,480 to the Rockefeller Foundation, $129,209,167 to the General
Education Board, $73,985,313 to the Laura Spelman and Rockefeller
Memorial Fund, and $60,673,409 to the Rockefeller Institute for Medical
John D. Rockefeller, Jr. (1874-1960), who was married to Abby Aldrich,
daughter of Sen. Nelson Aldrich, according to a February, 1905 McClure's
magazine article, was part of a corrupt political machine. He continued
the charitable tradition of his father. He spent over $40 million to buy
up land and convert it to National Parks, donating it to the public. The
most prominent of these parks is the Jackson Hole Preserve at the Grand
Teton National Park in northeastern Wyoming. In 1926, he reconstructed
the colonial town of Williamsburg, Virginia, spending $52.6 million to
restore 81 colonial buildings, and rebuild 404 others from original
plans, on their original foundations. Over 700 modern homes were torn
down in the 83 acre area to bring the 18th century town back to life. He
also built 45 other buildings, including three hotels to serve the
public, and planted gardens.
In 1929, he began building the Rockefeller Center in New York City, a
complex of 14 buildings, at a cost of $125 million, which was to surpass
the stature of the Dupont's Empire State Building. The Rockefeller
empire is run from the 55th and 56th floors of the RCA building, at 30
Rockefeller was quoted to have said: "So it may come to pass that
someday ... no one will speak of 'my country,' but all will speak of
He pushed his sons into five different areas of influence: John III,
into philanthropy; Nelson, into government (4-term Governor of New York,
and Vice-President under Ford); Laurance, into business; Winthrop, into
oil (also 2-term Governor of Arkansas); and David, into banking
(Chairman of the Chase Manhattan Bank and Director of the Federal
Reserve Bank of New York).
The Rockefellers, undeniably the richest family in America, increased
their fortune by marrying into other wealthy and influential families.
By 1937, there existed "an almost unbroken line of biological
relationships from the Rockefellers through one-half of the wealthiest
sixty families in the nation."
Percy Rockefeller (John, Jr.'s cousin), married Isabel Stillman,
daughter of James A. Stillman, President of National City Bank, and
William G. Rockefeller (another cousin), married S. Elsie Stillman.
Ethel Geraldine Rockefeller married Marcellus Hartley Dodge, which
linked Standard Oil and National City Bank, to the $50,000,000 fortune
of the Remington Arms Company and the Phelps Dodge Corp.
J. Stillman Rockefeller (grand nephew of John, Sr.) married Nancy C. S.
Carnegie, the grand niece of Andrew Carnegie. Their son was named Andrew
Edith Rockefeller (John, Jr.'s sister), married Harold F. McCormick, an
heir to the International Harvester Co. fortune. Their son, Fowler,
grandson to John, Sr. and Cyrus McCormick (who invented the Reaper),
married Fifi Stillman, the divorced wife of James Stillman.
Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, was married to Mary Todhunter Clark, the
granddaughter of the President of the Pennsylvania Railroad. They were
Winthrop Rockefeller married Jeanette Edris, a hotel and theater
heiress; and John (Jay) D. Rockefeller IV (one of John, Jr.'s
grandsons), the family's only Democrat (2-term Governor, and later U.S.
Senator, of West Virginia), married Sharon Percy, the daughter of Sen.
Charles Percy, who had been one of the Senate's most influential
All together, the Rockefeller family had been joined in marriage to the
Stillman, Dodge, McAlpin, McCormick, Carnegie, and Aldrich family
fortunes, and its wealth has been estimated to be well over $2 billion.
Some estimates even claim it to be as high as $20 billion. To compare,
John Paul Getty, Howard Hughes, and H. L. Hunt, had fortunes between
$2-$4 billion; and the Duponts and Mellons had fortunes between $3-$5
Ever since the TNEC hearings in 1937, which convened for the purpose of
finding out who was controlling the American economy, the Rockefellers
had been able to avoid any sort of accounting in regard to their vast
assets and holdings. That ended in December, 1974, when Nelson
Rockefeller was nominated to be Vice-President. Two University of
California professors, Charles Schwartz and William Domhoff, circulated
a report called "Probing the Rockefeller Fortune" which indicated that
15 employees working out of room 5600 of the RCA building had positions
on the boards of almost 100 corporations that had total assets of $70
billion. This was denied by the family, and in an unprecedented event, a
family spokesman, J. Richardson Dilworth, appeared before the U.S. House
of Representatives' Judiciary Committee during the 1975 'Hearings into
the Nomination of Nelson Rockefeller to be Vice-President of the United
States' to document the family's wealth, which he said only amounted to
Part of the Rockefeller's financial holdings consists of real estate,
foremost being the 4,180 acre family estate at Pocantico Hills, north of
New York City, which has 70 miles of private roads, 75 buildings, an
underground archives, and close to 500 servants, guards, gardeners and
chauffeurs. They also maintain over 100 residences in all parts of the
world. Besides investments held in personal trusts, the family also
holds stock in numerous companies.
Some of their major holdings: Chase Manhattan Bank, American Telephone &
Telegraph (AT & T), Eastman Kodak, IBM, General Electric, Texas
Instruments, Xerox, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, Monsanto
Chemical, Aluminum Co. of America (Alcoa), Armour, Bethlehem Steel,
Chrysler, DuPont, General Motors, International Paper, Polaroid, Sears
and Roebuck, Standard Oil of California (Chevron), Standard Oil of New
York (Mobil), Standard Oil of Indiana, U.S. Steel, International Basic
Economy Corp., International Harvester, Quaker Oats, Wheeling-Pittsburgh
Steel, Itek, Federated Department Stores, Walgreen Stores,
Transcontinental Gas Pipeline, Consolidated Edison, Anaconda Copper Co.,
General Foods, Pan American World Airways, Colgate-Palmolive, E. I. du
Pont de Nemours, W. R. Grace, Inc., Corning Glass Works, Owens Corning
Fiberglass, Cummins Engine, Hewlett-Packard, R. R. Donnelly and Son, Dow
Chemical, Teledyne, Inc., Warner-Lambert, Westinghouse, International
Telephone and Telegraph (IT & T), Motorola, S. S. Kresge, Texaco,
National Cash Register, Avon, American Home Products, Delta Airlines,
Braniff Airlines, Northwest Airlines, United Airlines, and Burlington
The financial core of the family fortune included the Chase Manhattan
Bank, Citicorp (which grew out of the Rockefeller-controlled First
National City Bank), the Chemical Bank of New York, First National Bank
of Chicago, Metropolitan Equitable, and New York Mutual Life Insurance.
By the 1970's, Rockefeller-controlled banks accounted for about 25% of
all assets of the 50 largest commercial banks in the country, and about
30% of all assets of the 50 largest life insurance companies.
The Chase Manhattan Bank, however, remains the supreme symbol of
Rockefeller domination. Founded in 1877 by John Thompson, the Chase
National Bank was named after Salomon P. Chase (Lincoln's Secretary of
Treasury). It was taken over by the Rockefellers in a merger with their
Equitable Trust Co., whose President was Winthrop Aldrich, son of Sen.
Nelson Aldrich. In 1955, it merged with the Bank of Manhattan (which had
been controlled by Warburg; and Kuhn, Loeb and Co), the oldest banking
operation in America (founded in 1799 by Alexander Hamilton and Aaron
Burr), which had 67 branches in New York, and $1.6 billion in assets.
Although it was only the sixth largest bank (over $98,000,000 in
assets), it was the most powerful.
In 1961, the Chase Manhattan Bank Plaza was built in downtown Manhattan,
at a cost of $125,000,000. It is 64 stories high, with five basement
floors, the lowest of which contains the largest bank vault in the
They had 28 foreign branches, and over 50,000 banking offices in more
than 50 countries, and had a controlling interest in many of the largest
corporations in America. Some of those that were listed in the Patman
Report: American National Bank and Trust, Safeway Stores, Reynolds
Metals, White Cross Stores, J. C. Penney, Northwest Airlines, Eastern
Airlines, TWA, Pan American World Airways, Western Airlines,
Consolidated Freightways, Roadway Express, Ryder, Wyandotte Chemicals,
Armstrong Rubber, A. H. Robins, G. D. Searle, Sunbeam, Beckman
Instruments, Texas Instruments, Sperry Rand, Boeing, Diebold, Cummins
Engine, Bausch and Lomb, CBS-TV, International Basic Economy Corp.,
Addressograph-Multigraph, Aetna Life, American General Insurance Co.,
Allegheny-Ludlum Steel, National Steel.
Men from the Chase Manhattan's Board of Directors have also sat on the
Boards of many of the largest corporations, which have created a system
of interlocking directorates. Some of these have been: Allegheny-Ludlum
Steel, U.S. Steel, Metropolitan Life, Travelers Insurance, Continental
Insurance, Equitable Life Assurance, General Foods, Chrysler Corp.,
Standard Oil of Indiana, New York Times, Cummins Engine, Burlington
Industries, ABC-TV, Standard Oil of New Jersey, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco,
Scott Paper, International Paper, International Basic Economy Corp.,
International Telephone & Telegraph, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Anaconda
Copper, Allied Stores, Federated Department Stores, R. H. Macy,
Colgate-Palmolive, Bell Telephone of Pennsylvania, Consolidated Edison
of New York, DuPont, Monsanto, Borden, Shell Oil, Gulf Oil, Union Oil,
Dow Chemical, Continental Oil, Union Carbide, and S. S. Kresge.
Chase also owned or controlled the Banco del Commerce (with over 100
branches in Columbia and Peru), Banco Continental (with about 40
branches in Peru), Banco Atlantida (with 20 branches in the Honduras),
Nederlandsche Crediet (with over 60 branches in the Netherlands), and
Standard Bank Group (with over 1,200 branches in 17 African countries).
Through a subsidiary, the Chase Investment Corp., they owned a sheep and
cattle raising operation in Australia, hotels in Puerto Rico and
Liberia, a ready-mix concrete facility in Brazil, a cotton textile mill
in Nigeria, a paint factory in Venezuela, a steel mill in Turkey, a
petrochemical plant in Argentina, a bus line in the Virgin Islands, and
bowling alleys in England.
Our tax dollars, through the Export-Import Bank, International Monetary
Fund, Cooperation for Overseas Investment, and the International
Stabilization Fund, are used to give aid to other countries, some who
were communist. Millions of dollars were given to Yugoslavia, including
hundreds of jets, many of which ended up being given to Castro in Cuba.
Chase, and the Export-Import Bank financed 90% of the $2 billion loan to
build the Kama River truck complex in Russia, which was equipped with
the world's largest industrial computer system, with the capability of
producing up to 200,000 ten-ton trucks a year. A U.S. Government
official who toured the facility, reported that V-12 diesel engines were
being produced there, and said: "There is only one vehicle in Russia
that uses that type of engine, and that's a Russian battle tank."
Besides the production of trucks, they also have the capability of
producing jeeps, military transports and rocket launchers. The repayment
period for the loan was twelve years, with a 4-1/2 year grace period.
The loan repayment was guaranteed by the U.S. taxpayers through
government agencies like the Overseas Private Investment Corp., and the
Foreign Credit Insurance Association.
Chase Manhattan and the Bank of America lent about $36 million for the
Bechtel Corp. to build and equip an international Trade Center in
Moscow, which had been arranged by Armand Hammer of Occidental
Petroleum, a personal friend of Lenin, and son of one of the founders of
the U.S. Communist Party.
The Export-Import Bank, and other private American banks also put up all
but $40 million for a $400 million fertilizer plant in Russia.
In 1967, the International Basic Economy Corp. (with 140 subsidiaries
and affiliates), owned by all five Rockefeller Brothers, run by Richard
Aldrich (grandson of Sen. Nelson Aldrich), and Rodman Rockefeller (son
of Nelson Rockefeller, and a CFR member); and Tower International, Inc.,
headed by Cyrus S. Eaton, Jr., a Cleveland financier (who was the son of
a man who started his career as secretary to John D. Rockefeller, later
making his own fortune), joined to promote trade among the Iron Curtain
countries. In 1969 the IBEC announced that N. M. Rothschild and Sons of
London had become a partner. This partnership built a $50 million
aluminum production center in Russia, and announced a multi-million plan
for Russia and other Eastern European countries, which included the
building of large hotels in Bucharest, Sofia, Budapest, Belgrade,
Prague, and Warsaw; rubber plants, and a glass plant in Romania. In
addition, Tower International made an agreement with the Soviet patent
and licensing organization, Licensintorg, to promote Soviet-American
trade, which up to that time, was done by Amtorg Trading Corp., the
official Soviet agency in America. This gave the Rockefellers and Eatons
complete control over what technology was sent to Russia.
David Rockefeller, the head of the Chase Manhattan, and the family
patriarch, controls many secondary interlocks which contribute to the
family's power and influence. Some of these have been: Firestone Tire &
Rubber Co., Honeywell, Inc., Northwest Airlines, Minnesota Mining and
Manufacturing Co., Allied Chemical Corp., General Motors, Chrysler
Corp., International Basic Economy Corp., R. H. Macy and Co., Mutual
Benefit Life Insurance Co. of New York, American Express Co.,
Hewlett-Packard, Exxon, Equitable Life Assurance Society of the U.S.,
Federated Department Stores, General Electric, Scott Paper, AT & T,
Burlington Industries, Wachovia Corp., R. J. Reynolds Industries, U.S.
Steel Corp., Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., May Department Stores,
Sperry Rand Corp., and Standard Oil of Indiana.
On July 9, 1968, the New York Times reported on a study by a House
Banking Subcommittee, headed by Rep. Wright Patman of Texas, which said:
"A few banking institutions are in a position to exercise significant
influence, and perhaps even control, over some of the largest business
enterprises in the nation." Just as the Rockefellers have these
extensive interlocking connections, other leading bankers, the other 107
directors of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks, and members of the Council on
Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and Bilderbergers, also have
similar connections to these and hundreds of other major corporations.
Now you can see how these like-minded individuals have been able to
control American industry and business.
Though the Rockefeller Foundation is the primary foundation of the
family, there are many others operated by them, such as the Rockefeller
Family Fund, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Martha Baird Rockefeller Fund
for Music, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Fund, John D. Rockefeller
III Fund, Rockefeller Institute, Standard Oil (Indiana) Foundation, Esso
Education Foundation, American International Foundation for Economic and
Social Development, China Medical Board, Agricultural Development
Council, Government Affairs Foundation, Sealantic Fund (oversees
contributions to religious charities "to strengthen and develop
Protestant education" to which John Rockefeller, Jr. contributed $23
million), Jackson Preserve, Inc., Council on Economic and Cultural
Development, and the Chase Manhattan Bank Foundation. There are some who
believe that the Rockefellers may run close to 200 trusts and
Prior to their appointments, Cyrus Vance (Secretary of State under
Carter) and Dean Rusk (Secretary of State under Kennedy) were both
Presidents of the Rockefeller Foundation.
You have seen how powerful the Rockefeller family is, now let's look at
how the Rockefeller Foundation has used its money.
Through interlocking directorates, the Foundation controls the Carnegie
Endowment, and the Ford Foundation. While the Carnegie Endowment deals
with education, as it relates to international matters; the Rockefeller
Foundation concentrates on education, as it relates to domestic issues.
It financed and influenced seven major policy-making agencies: Social
Science Research Council (who explored the means of controlling people
through scientific methods, such as mass media), Russian Institute of
Columbia University (who developed methods of conditioning Americans
into accepting a merging of the Soviet Union and America under a
one-world government), Council on Foreign Relations, National Bureau of
Economic Research (who worked closely with the Federal Reserve Board),
Public Administration Clearing House (in Chicago), Brookings
Institution, and the Institute of Pacific Relations (who was responsible
for planning the communist subversion of America).
The Rockefeller Foundation provided over $50,000 to fund the Building
America textbook series, which played up Marxism, and sought to destroy
"traditional concepts of American government." Over 100 communist
organizations contributed material, including the writings of over 50
communist writers. The California Legislature said that the books
contained "purposely distorted references favoring Communism..." The
Foundation contributed money to the pro-communist New School for Social
Research in New York City, and funded projects for the communist-staffed
Southern Christian Leadership Conference, led by Rev. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Rep. Cox said that the Rockefeller Foundation has "been used
to finance individuals and organizations whose business it has been to
get communism into private and public schools of the country, to talk
down to America, and play up Russia..." The Foundation also funded the
Kinsey Report, which heralded a new era of sexual immorality.
The purpose of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, is the "support of efforts
in the U.S. and abroad that contribute ideas, develop leaders, and
encourage institutions in the transition to global interdependence." In
1974, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund gave grants to: A.C.L.U. Foundation
($45,000); Atlantic Institute for International Affairs, in Paris
($10,000); Carnegie Endowment for International Peace ($60,000);
Columbia University ($9,500); Council on Foreign Relations ($125,000),
Foreign Policy Association ($20,000); International Institute for
Strategic Studies, in London ($5000); NAACP ($145,000); National Council
of Churches of Christ in the U.S.A. ($10,000); National Urban League
($100,000); Trilateral Commission ($50,000); U.N. Association of the
U.S.A., Inc. ($25,000); United Negro College Fund, Inc. ($10,000); and
the U.S. Conference for the World Council of Churches, Inc. ($2,500).
