The Musical Miser Who Gave Away a Million
Henry Klooster, a bookkeeper who died at 98, never spent more than $1,000 on a "new" car, used paper-clips to keep his curtains together, and owned but a single bowl and spoon.

"He was a millionaire, this guy, and he never spent a penny of it until he died," says one pal.
