Winthrop Rockefeller

Rockefeller: Winthrop Rockefeller was the 37th governor of Arkansas who was in office from 1967-1971. In 1953 he created Winrock Enterprises and Winrock Farms on top of Petite Jean Mountain which is close to Morrilton, Arkansas. Winthrop was important because during his term in office he greatly influenced the future governor of Arkansas and future president, Bill Clinton. Billy Joel was probably referring to Winthrop in the song rather then his brother Nelson because Winthrop was more televised. (Akash)
