    When the Lusitania was torpedoed by a German submarine off the Irish coast in 1915, ...

  • Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, perhaps the most widely known man amongst those who were the victims of the sinking of the Lusitania by a German torpedo, left an estate valued at a little more than £5,000,000 (writes the Wellington Post's San Francisco correspondent).
    At one time he had been in the neighbourhood of £9,000,000 but in his lifetime he gave away the difference between the two sums to his first wife, when she divorced him, and to his brother Cornelius.
    The latter had been left a comparatively small legacy by his father because he married against his parent's wishes. All the members of the family united to make the legacy of Cornelius equal to that of the other children, and to this purpose Alfred Vanderbilt donated £1,120,000.
    The second wife and widow of Alfred Vanderbilt receives about £1,600,000 under the will. She is one of the most beautiful women in America. Before her marriage to Mr Vanderbilt she was the wife of Dr Smith H. McKim, of Philadelphia.
    She and Mr Vanderbilt became infatuated with each other. Both were married at the time. Two divorces were necessary to clear the way to their union.
    Liberal provision is made in the will for the children of both marriages, but the second family get somewhat the larger share. There is no bequest in the will to any religious, charitable, or educational establishment.

    庫柏的曾曾曾外公以船運與鐵路致富,小時候家裡常有安迪沃荷、查理卓別林等名人到訪,他的母親范德比(Gloria Vanderbilt)除繼承家族遺產,還是知名牛仔褲設計師,身家高達台幣60億元,但庫柏表示,「我媽賺的錢比她繼承的還多,我們都勤奮工作。」
    庫柏指出,家裡遺留的財富,他一毛也不要,「有哪些繼承大筆遺產的人,能在自己的人生幹出一番事業來的?如果知道將來會有一大筆金銀財寶等著給我,我不知道人生還有什麼動力。」
    46歲的庫柏目前是CNN當家主播,綽號「銀狐」的他,擁有一頭銀白色短髮及湛藍眼珠,每年靠自己工作賺進1100萬美元(約等同於新台幣3億3千萬),目前住在紐約的高級住宅區,並在長島擁有兩棟度假別墅。

    “When you’re fearful, it often leads to a paralysis.... It was a very liberating moment when I realized I just need to plunge headfirst into the stuff that scares me.” — Anderson Cooper spoke at Battell Chapel after receiving the 2016 Yale Undergraduates’ Lifetime Achievement Award from Yale College Council
