Do you expect to be remembered...

...for your eyebrows? George Gund III, who died on Tuesday at age 75, was.

From his obit in the Times:

He was the firstborn son of the banker and philanthropist George Gund II, who made his fortune as the head of Cleveland Trust when it was the largest bank in Ohio. The younger Gund inherited his father’s vast wealth and his abundant eyebrows, but he only flaunted the latter. “He loved them,” Melanie Blum, a longtime assistant to Mr. Gund, recalled. “When he was going through chemo, he was worried he was going to lose his eyebrows. But he never did, and he was so happy about that.”

I prefer mine.
