A Modest Janitor Built $8 Million Fortune – So Can You


I have enjoyed reading the many tributes to Ronald Read, a former gas station attendant and janitor in Brattleboro, Vermont, who passed away last year at age 92 and left $4.8 million to the local hospital and $1.2 million to the town’s library. His generosity reportedly resulted in the largest single gifts either institution had ever received. Stories about this unassuming man, who was known for his flannel shirts and frugal lifestyle, were distributed by news outlets across the country. How could a man who lived on such a meager wage accumulate the kind of wealth that Read possessed?
