One of America’s first eccentric rich guys, Lord Timothy Dexter, first in the East, the first in the West, and the greatest philosopher in the Western World, is just such a man. If you haven’t heard of Timothy Dexter before now, then oh boy are you in for a treat. Enough to make a living, sure, but certainly not enough to make the kind of fortune an ambitious man like Timothy Dexter would need. After living such an unusual life, Lord Dexter found himself curious about what his legacy would be after he was gone. Eventually Timothy Dexter kicked the bucket for real, going at the age of 59 on October 26th, 1806.
