5Even though he was known for his frugality, he had a knack for collecting valuable art. On his 64 acre Malibu, California estate, he built a $18 million museum and covered its expenses with an endowment of $40 million. The museum opened in 1974.

11His first big break in the oil business occurred in 1915, when he purchased an interest in an oil lease on a farm south of Tulsa, Oklahoma for $500.
