- Meile Rockefeller
Meile Louise Rockefeller (born 1955) is the daughter of Rodman Rockefeller and his first wife, Barbara Ann Olsen. Her grandfather is former New York Governor and former U.S. Vice President Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller. She is a member of the Rockefeller family.
Meile is a lawyer, real-estate developer, drug law reformer, and serves on the board of the Counseling Service of the Eastern District of New York. The Counseling Service assists people with drug and alcohol problems.
In 2002, at 46, Meile made a name for herself when she was arrested for protesting the "Rockefeller drug laws" which bear the name of her grandfather, who secured their passage as governor of the state of New York in 1973. Meile was accompanied by her brother, Stuart Rockefeller, and was supported by other members of the family on the issue, including her grandfather's brother, Laurance Rockefeller, who died in 2004.
