Armand Hammer (deceased 1991) Wikipedia article Among his legacies is the Armand Hammer United World College of the American West (now generally called the UWC-USA, part of the United World Colleges).
"Dr. Armand Hammer was the chairman and founder of Occidental Petroleum Corporation. He was a philanthropist, entrepreneur, art collector, medical doctor, citizen-diplomat, friend of heads-of-state, world traveler and visionary. He served as the Chairman of President Ronald Reagan’s Cancer Panel for eight years. During this time, Dr Hammer experienced first-hand the high demand for cancer research grants and the inability to fill them based on lack of funds. His vision for a nationally focused campaign dedicated to funding cancer research became clear and with the help of good friend, Sherry Lansing, STOP CANCER was born. Until his death in December 1990 at age 92-1/2, he literally worked around the clock seven days a week to make difference and see his vision fulfilled."
"In the early 1950s, Occidental Petroleum's Armand Hammer, a satrap of the Rockefellers, negotiated a deal with Russian dictator Joseph Stalin to buy his oil--thus effectively stealing it from the Russian people."

- "Joseph Finder's book, The Moscow Club, reissued this past Christmas, is a fascinating 'what if' story. When the novel was first published in February 1991 it was not a historical thriller, but rather chilling prediction of events that would actually occur later that year. The book's fictional Soviet coup d'état became a reality when Mikhail Gorbachev was overthrown about six months later. What readers will find even more intriguing is his main character, who was based on Armand Hammer."
