Rockefeller’s interest in philanthropy and Public Relations began in 1904, influenced by Ida Tarbell’s book published about Standard Oil crimes, The History of the Standard Oil Company, which prompted him to whitewash the Rockefeller image. His initial idea to set up a large-scale foundation occurred in 1901, but it was not until 1906 that Senior’s famous business and philanthropic advisor, Frederick Taylor Gates, seriously revived the idea, saying that Rockefeller’s fortune was rolling up so fast his heirs would „dissipate their inheritances or become intoxicated with power“, unless he set up „permanent corporate philanthropies for the good of Mankind“. It was also in 1906 that the Russell Sage Foundation was established, though its program was limited to working women and social ills. They applied for a federal charter for the foundation in the US Senate in 1910, with at one stage Junior even secretly meeting with President William Howard Taft, through the aegis of Senator Nelson Aldrich, to hammer out concessions.
