John Dorrance, III.

John Dorrance, III. was born on 1943 in Dublin, Ireland, Ireland. Heir to the Campbell's Soup fortune, his grandfather invented Campbell's formula for condensed soup. His relatives are still company's largest shareholders, but he sold his 10.5% stake in the mid-1990's and emigrated to Ireland. His move was presumably timed to avoid capital gains taxes when he sold his Campbell's stake. The Irish government reportedly gave him citizenship when he spent $1.5 million planting trees.
