If only Cuban moved back home.....

Businessweek profiles a book that includes a profile richest person in Akron. Fine, but unless I am missing something Pittsburgh is missing in the profiles of the richest person in 100 places across the US. Anyone find any other locals in there?

You know though... I have not looked at the Forbes list recently. Would Cuban be the richest person in town. Probably not even close when you consider the random billionaire or two we have around. Who is the richest person actually residing in the region? Druckenmiller?

Two thoughts:
1. I have heard that Druckenmiller resides near NYC. It's possible he legally lives here (I don't know), but he doesn't spend most of his time here, that's what I hear.

2. On the 2008 list only 3 of the 400 list pittsburgh Druckenmiller (105), Henry Hilman (134) and Richard Scaife (355). Also Margaret Magerko in Belle Vernon (think 84 Lumber)

Henry Hillman is the richest person in Pittsburgh. He has been for years and his net worth is increasing. He is worth over double what Scaife is worth.
