During his lifetime, the shirt-sleeves individualist ran his insurance empire from a table in a Florida coffee shop and had neither the time nor the inclination to become a munificent donor. "I'm going to do what I do best; I'm going to make the money," he told his lawyer, William Kirby. "When I die, you fellows give it away."
