1911 - By the time this person was 38 years old, the United States Supreme Court broke up Standard Oil in May. John D. Rockefeller established Standard Oil in 1870 and it was the largest oil refinery at the time.

The Court broke up the several entities that comprised Standard Oil and they eventually became competing firms.
