Came across a fascinating article on reclusive heiress Huguette Clark (daughter of Sen. William Clark, the founder of Las Vegas!): Here is the article in Huffington Post.

A new book, Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, takes a look at Huguette Clark, who passed away in 2011 at the age of 104. Among her possessions were several Stradivarius violins, paintings by Monet and Sargent - all stashed away in multiple mansions across the country! Violinist Henri Temianka, in his book, Facing the Music, talks about her and her mother, Mrs. William A. Clark, who helped found the Paganini Quartet.
