Breaking news: Dennis Washington still really rich

Posted By on Tue, Mar 16, 2010 at 3:15 PM

Forbes released its annual list of the world's top billionaires, and Missoula's own Dennis Washington landed just outside the Top 200. The 75-year-old Washington, of course, is no stranger to these lists after turning a high school diploma into $4.2 billion, according to Forbes' calculations. The majority of his wealth is held in Montana Rail Link, mines and "the largest tug and barge fleet in British Columbia."

Other Montanans making Forbes' list:

No. 582. Livingston's Austen Cargill II and Bozeman's Marianne Liebmann, $1.7 billion, inherited from family food businesses
No. 773. St. Ignatius resident Linda Pritzker, $1.3 billion, inherited from family hotel investments
