John Kluge Has Died

Philanthropist and businessman John Kluge died yesterday in Charlottesville. The famed businessman ranked as the wealthiest American from 1989-1991, a run cut short by the rise of Microsoft. Nine years ago he donated his estate, Morven, to UVA, and auctioned off most of the estate’s contents in 2005. He lived mostly in Florida in recent years. Perhaps as locally well-known as him is his ex-wife, Patricia Kluge, and his widow, Tussi Kuttner. John Kluge was 95 years old.
