Rockefeller and his Modish Gloves

Despite his 92 years, John D. Rockefeller is a familiar figure on his golf course at Ormond Beach, Fla., where this most recent photo was made. It is interesting to recall that Mr. Rockefeller retired as president of Standard Oil company almost exactly 20 years ago, December, 1911.

The aged magnate takes his golf seriously and would not dream of missing his daily round. Note the modish split-back gloves and carefully water-proofed golf shoes.
