David Rockefeller, Philanthropist and Head of Chase Manhattan, Dies at 101 - New York Times

Monday, March 27, 2017

David Rockefeller, the banker and philanthropist with the fabled family name who controlled Chase Manhattan bank for more than a decade and wielded vast influence around the world for even longer as he spread the gospel of American capitalism, died on Monday morning at his home in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. He was 101.His son David Jr. confirmed the death.Chase Manhattan had long been known as the Rockefeller bank, although the family never owned more than 5 percent of its shares. But Mr. Rockefeller was more than a steward. As chairman and chief executive throughout the 1970s, he made it “David’s bank,” as many called it, expanding its operations internationally.His stature was greater than any corporate title might convey, however. His influence was felt in Washington and foreign capitals, in the corridors of New York City government, in art museums, in great universities and in public schools.Mr. Rockefeller could well be the last of a less and less visible family to have cut so imposing a figure on the world stage. As a peripatetic advocate of the economic interests of the United St...

An Obituary Six Years in the Making for Jimmy Breslin - New York Times

Monday, March 27, 2017

But Mr. Breslin was not nearly so remote a figure to those involved in writing his obituary. Sam Roberts, another obit writer, also knew Mr. Breslin personally; he was at home in Manhattan when he received the call from Ronnie Eldridge, Mr. Breslin’s wife, with the news. Mr. Roberts’s email to Mr. McDonald was used to corroborate Mr. Breslin’s death.In fact, when Mr. Barry was first given the assignment in 2011, he demurred. “As an aspiring journalist in New York City, he was my ideal,” he said. “When you’re writing the obit, and you know someone, you don’t really want to consider the inevitable.”Once he began reporting, though, Mr. Barry regularly checked details with Ms. Eldridge. When asked if he believed she had told her husband about the obituary that was already in progress, Mr. Barry suggested that Mr. Breslin had probably figured it out himself.“We’re journalists,” he said. “He knew this is what we do.”This article is an adapted and updated version of a Times Insider post from Oct. 8, 2015.
