One Idahoan shows up on Forbes list of world's billionaires

Robert Earl Holding
Forbes Magazine's list of the world's billionaires came out this week. Being naturally curious, I wanted to see if there were any Idahoans on it. There was one, Robert Holding, 86, of Sun Valley, founder of Little America and owner of the Sun Valley and Snowbasin resorts, as well as Sinclair Oil and lots and lots of land.
