From Our Family to Yours: A Collection of Rockefeller Family Holiday Cards
Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV came to West Virginia in 1964 as a 27-year-old VISTA volunteer in the small community of Emmons, an experience that shaped his extensive career in public service. While serving in the West Virginia House of Delegates, Rockefeller met Sharon Lee Percy, daughter of U.S. Senator Charles Percy of Illinois, and they were married in April 1967. The couple settled in West Virginia where Rockefeller continued a successful career that brought them to West Virginia Wesleyan College, the West Virginia Governor’s mansion, and eventually the U.S. Congress. The Rockefellers had four children, John Davison “Jamie” V, Valerie, Charles, and Justin Aldrich, and later several grandchildren. “From Our Family to Yours: A Collection of Rockefeller Family Holiday Cards” features several cards sent by the Rockefellers to family and friends throughout many years in public service. The cards became a popular collectible among some supporters and originals reside in the Senator John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV papers at the West Virginia and Regional History Center.
