    It seems like I remember reading that Carnegie bought Skibo because he was denied entry there many years prior. Or something like that.

    Anyway, yes, this is the greatest rags to riches story ever.
     
  3. How about maybe the more relevant now riches to rags
    story of Nikola Tesla. Invented the age of electric
    power but had his inventions stolen and driven into
    bankruptcy by Thomas Edison. His later fame was even
    stolen because the government classified his papers.
