Magazine magnate Walter Annenberg dies at age 94. The fortune he amassed is not near so impressive as the one he gave away.


Over the years, Mr. Annenberg became one of the country’s biggest philanthropists, giving away more than $2 billion in cash…to say nothing of his art donations. The recipients were as diverse as the Peddie School in Hightstown, N.J., the small prep school he attended, the United Negro College Fund ($50 million), organizations for the reform of public education ($500 million), and Israel, whose Emergency Fund received a contribution of $1 million from him after the June 1967 war.
