American hotel magnate who built a financial empire with his second wife, Leona Helmsley. Their partnership holdings included some 50,000 apartments and 27 hotels across the U.S. Before they met, he was a Quaker boy who began work as a $12 a week office boy in 1925. He bought his first building for $1,000 during the depths of the depression.
He was a staid, successful business man with his first wife, Evie, whom he divorced in 1971 after 33 years of marriage. The following year he married Leona Roberts and they set about their accumulation of wealth, all the while living a lavish lifestyle. The Helmsley's were a very devoted couple.
He died of pneumonia on 1/04/1997 with Leona at his side.
