dc.description.abstract The time constraints and sheer volume of requests placed on industrialist John D. Rockefeller prompted the employment of Reverend Frederick T. Gates. Gates became "a right-hand man" to Rockefeller. The aid of Gates helped Rockefeller achieve a much greater efficiency in his activities. Gates's position combined the roles of an advisor and as one able to act as Rockefeller's proxy. This thesis discusses the right-hand man relationship between the two by looking at the origins of this relationship, circumstances shaping the relationship, specific manifestations of this relationship, and the evolution of this relationship to include Rockefeller's son, John D. Rockefeller, Junior.
