Winthrop Rockefeller was an American politician and philanthropist, who served as the first Republican governor of Arkansas since Reconstruction. He was a third-generation member of the Rockefeller family. Winthrop Rockefeller was born in New York, to philanthropists John Davison Rockefeller Jr. and Abigail Greene "Abby" Aldrich. He had one elder sister named Abby, three elder brothers John III, Laurance, a younger brother named David. Nelson served as Vice President of the United States under Gerald Ford. Winthrop attended Yale University but was ejected as a result of misbehavior before earning his degree. Prior to attending Yale, he graduated from the Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut. In early 1941, he enlisted in the Army; as a soldier of the 77th Infantry Division, he fought in World War II, advancing from Private to Lieutenant Colonel. He earned a Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Clusters and a Purple Heart for his actions aboard the troopship USS Henrico, after a kamikaze attack during the invasion of Okinawa.
His image appears in the Infantry Officer Hall of Fame at Georgia. On February 14, 1948, Winthrop married actress Jievute "Bobo" Paulekiute, she was married to Boston Brahmin socialite John Sears Jr. The wedding took place in Florida, at the reception, a choir sang Negro spirituals. On September 17, 1948, she gave birth to Winthrop Paul "Win" Rockefeller; the couple separated in 1950 and divorced in 1954. Bobo got custody of Win. On June 11, 1956, Rockefeller wed the Seattle-born socialite Jeanette Edris, she had two children and Ann Bartley, from a previous marriage. Winthrop and Jeanette had no children together and divorced shortly after he left the governorship in 1971; as the state's First Lady, Jeanette Rockefeller took a special interest in mental health issues. Rockefeller moved to central Arkansas in 1953 and established Winrock Enterprises and Winrock Farms atop Petit Jean Mountain near Morrilton in Conway County. In 1954, Republican Pratt C. Remmel polled 37 percent of the vote in the gubernatorial general election against Democrat Orval Faubus.
It was a good showing for a Republican candidate in Arkansas, compared to previous races in the 1940s and early 1950s. Twelve years Rockefeller would build upon Remmel's race and win the governorship for the Republican Party. In 1955, Faubus appointed Rockefeller chairman of the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission. Rockefeller initiated a number of projects, he financed the building of a model school at Morrilton and led efforts to establish a Fine Arts Center in the capital city of Little Rock. He financed the construction of medical clinics in some of the state's poorest counties, in addition to making annual gifts to the state's colleges and universities; these philanthropic activities continue to this day through the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation. In 1960, Rockefeller did not seek the governorship but instead raised funds for the Republican nominee, Henry M. Britt, a conservative lawyer from Hot Springs, the seat of Garland County. Britt lost in every county and polled 30 percent of the statewide vote in his loss to Faubus.
In 1961, Rockefeller was named Arkansas Republican national committeeman, having succeeded Wallace Townsend, a lawyer in Little Rock who had held the position since 1928. In 1962, Rockefeller supported Willis Ricketts, another in a long line of failed Republican candidates who sought to topple Faubus, he supported a slate of Republican legislative candidates. Soon, he quarreled with state Republican party chairman William L. Spicer of Fort Smith over the direction of the party. Spicer favored a stronger conservative approach compared to Rockefeller's moderate-to-liberal outlook. Rockefeller resigned his position with the AIDC and conducted his first campaign for governor in 1964 against Faubus, his campaign was unsuccessful, but Rockefeller energized and reformed the tiny Republican Party to set the stage for the future. In 1964, Osro Cobb, a Republican former state chairman who had served as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas, refused to endorse Rockefeller but Faubus, who subseqauently gave Cobb a temporary appointment to the Arkansas Supreme Court.
In his memoirs, Cobb recalls that Rockefeller had used ruthless tactics to convert the fine Republican state organization into a one-man Rockefeller machine, loyal not to party but to Rockefeller personally. In rapid succession, Mr. Rockefeller captiously took over most of the functions of the state chairman and in a matter of months succeeded in taking over and exercising absolute right of dictation as to each and every important party function at the state level; such one-man dictatorship is the deadly enemy of any semblance of two-party government.... Faithful Republican leaders who have worked tirelessly over the years have been pushed aside or replaced.... A stranger passing through Arkansas at this time and seeing Mr. Rockefeller's advertising on billboards would not know whether Mr. Rockefeller belonged to any political party; the fact that he is the Republican nominee has not been included. The evidence is unanswerable that Mr. Rockefeller is working for his own personal interest to the exclusion of all other considerations, which leaves the Republican Party in Arkansas hanging precariously at the whims of one individual....
When Rockefeller made his second run in the 1966 election, only 11 percent of Arkansans considered themselves Republicans. But Arkansans had tired of Faubus after six terms as governor and as head of the Democratic "machine". Democrats themselves seemed to be more interested in the refor

Winthrop More Daniels
Winthrop More Daniels was an American government official and university professor. A friend and onetime assistant of then-Professor Woodrow Wilson, President Wilson appointed Daniels a member of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1914, stood by him through a bitter confirmation battle in the Senate, he was a longime professor at Princeton University, where he was an assistant to Wilson before becoming a fellow professor, at Yale University. He was born in Dayton, the son of Mary and Edwin Daniels, he attended Princeton University where he secured his bachelor's degree in 1888 and his master's degree two years later. He studied at the University of Leipzig in 1890, taught for a year as an instructor at Wesleyan University from 1891–92. In 1892, Daniels was appointed as assistant professor of political economy, three years became a full professor, a post he kept until he entered government service in 1911, he married Joan Robertson in 1898. A friend of Wilson's, Daniels joined with Wilson in training the Princeton debaters for their championship matches against Harvard University and Yale University.
On May 1, 1911, Daniels became a member of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, replacing Frank H. Sommer of Newark, New Jersey. While on the Commission, Daniels authored a rate case opinion involving the Passaic Gas Company, in which he added intangible value for goodwill to the physical value of the corporation; this was controversial. On November 21, 1913, Interstate Commerce Commissioner John Hobart Marble died after an attack of acute indigestion; the death of Marble, appointed to fulfill the unexpired term of Franklin Knight Lane after Lane was appointed Interior Secretary, together with the resignation of Charles A. Prouty left Wilson with two seats to fill, he chose Henry Clay Hall. While Hall had no difficulty being confirmed, because of the Passaic rate case, Daniels' nomination was bitterly opposed by progressives in the Senate led by Robert M. La Follette, Sr. and New Jersey Senator James Edgar Martine. Wilson refused to withdraw the nominations, stating that he would be responsible for Daniels' success as an ICC member.
After a three-day battle, the Senate confirmed Daniels, with La Follette himself voting for confirmation. Daniels' confirmation, by a vote of 36 to 27 on April 3, 1914, came after some Democrats, inclined to oppose Daniels voted in favor rather than offend President Wilson by rejecting a personal friend of the President; the nomination had been believed to be in serious danger, with the Democrats "in despair" fearing a rejection by the Senate. Wilson's renomination of Daniels in December 1916 set off a second bruising fight in the Senate, with the progressive wing of the Republican party opposing the nomination due to their belief that Daniels was a reactionary. Nonetheless, Daniels was reconfirmed for a full seven-year term on January 10, 1917, 42 to 15. In early 1923, nearly a year before the scheduled end of his term, Daniels resigned, he became a professor of transportation at Yale University, where he served until 1940 when he retired. He died January 3, 1944 in Saybrook Point, Connecticut
