Billionaires With Philly Ties
Posted on Wed, Mar 28, 2012
Dozens of the world's wealthiest people have a Philadelphia connection. Here's a rundown, including wealth as estimated on Forbes' 2013 list of billionaires. Newcomers are first, followed by people who still live in the area, grew up here or do high-profile business here. Most of the names are alums of Penn, including its Wharton School; Temple; Princeton; and other universities in the region. At the end: Folks who lived here while on the list but are no longer on it.
