Rodman Rockefeller, 68, Dies; Active in Latin Trade Efforts By ERIC PACE Published: May 16, 2000

Rodman C. Rockefeller, the eldest son of Nelson A. Rockefeller, who was active in efforts that led to the North American Free Trade Agreement and in forging closer ties between the United States and Latin America, died on Sunday night at his home on the East Side of Manhattan. He was 68 and also had a home in the Pocantico Hills section of Tarrytown, N.Y.

The cause was cancer, said Fraser P. Seitel, a spokesman for the Rockefeller family.

Mr. Rockefeller was the longtime chairman of Pocantico Associates, a private venture capital and real estate investment concern. He was also long active in Rockefeller family affairs.

Nelson Rockefeller was President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs during World War II, and Rodman's first journey to Mexico was as a teenager with his father in 1946, when President Miguel Aleman was inaugurated. Nelson Rockefeller went on to become governor of New York and vice president of the United States.

From the late 1960's into the 1990's, Rodman strove to spur trade with Mexico and other countries in Latin America and worked for the liberalization of foreign investment there.
