Avery Rockefeller was the son of Percy A. Rockefeller, and the grand nephew of John D. Rockefeller. He bought Ampersand Lake, east of Ampersand Mountain from Ferris Meigs in 1938 for $157,700 using brother-in-law Griffith Mark as a front man, after a lengthy title dispute with the state of New York.
Rockefeller founded the Wild Wings Foundation, a conservation organization with projects in Belize and the Adirondacks.
