Biography

American entrepreneur who parlayed a bankrupt orange-juice bottling plant into a billion-dollar conglomerate. He was a renaissance man, an art connoisseur and patron who spent more than $100 million putting together one of America's greatest private art collections that eventually went into the museum bearing his name. Norton Simon was a brooding, driven man, one who could multiply long figures in his head and was perennially dissatisfied. He divorced his first wife in 1970 after 37 years of marriage.

A short time after meeting retired actress Jennifer Jones, they married on 5/29/1981 on a boat in the English Channel. Norton's health was deteriorating and he was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome in 1985. He died on 6/01/1993 at his Los Angeles home; age 86.
