      When Rockefeller left the governorship in after four terms, Happy the cat remained at the mansion. “Happy was never a problem. The kitchen staff took good care of her,” Bennett said. In early , after he had left office, Governor Rockefeller had the majority of his personal modern art collection removed from the Executive Mansion, but he decided to leave several works of art in the mansion for use by future governors. This gift included the Indiana prints, which were eventually moved out of the mansion and placed in storage.

    Under Governor Rockefeller, MacCrate, served as associate counsel (Feb. 2, June 1, ) and then counsel (June 1, J ). The primary responsibility of counsel to the governor was to translate the governor's programs into law. He and his staff ensured that bills were correctly drafted and helped to prevent enactment of bills. The Rockefeller art collection belongs to the citizens of the state of New York. This is a stunning collection of about 80 pieces of midth century modernist art. The artworks can be seen in the concourse (below ground), the plaza level, and in the State Museum.

      Like many communities, Albany struggled with economic recession throughout the 20th century, and various development projects erased many historic neighborhoods. The symposium’s opening lecture and reception took place in the heart of the massive Empire State Plaza, an urban renewal effort of the s and s at the behest of Governor.   In , the heir of J. D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil fortune gave railroad heir W. Averell Harriman a run for his money in the gubernatorial race. Rockefeller won the governor’s mansion as a Republican. He came to serve in Albany for almost fifteen years, transforming the state, for good and bad, with his ambitious visions and politics.
