Remembering Mr. Rockafeller Accomplishments
Mr. James Stillman Rockefeller attended Yale University, where he rowed for all four years of his college career. He became team captain in his senior year and led his team in beating Harvard University's crew, which was then considered the best in the nation. Yale's victory over Harvard at their annual regatta earned Mr. Rockefeller's crew the right to compete in the Olympics as the United States team.
Lucy Eisenberg and Jessica Matthews wanted to sell their portions of the property; Tuchman wanted to continue living on the property, which includes a house, stables, several small cottages and acres of open space. The sisters were unable to work out an agreement and, in October 2000, Eisenberg and Matthews sued Tuchman.
