Librarian’s HUGE 50-Year Secret Revealed When School Finds What He’s Hiding!
The University of New Hampshire just had an unexpected windfall… from a librarian. Robert Morin just passed away and he left all his money to the university and it was a lot… $4 million. You might wonder how he accumulated such an amount as a librarian. It’s simple… he never spent anything. Morin had over $1 million in his retirement account alone.
He worked at the library there for almost 50 years. He was a cataloger and never, ever went out. He drove an old car and ate frozen dinners. This takes frugal to a whole new level. I’m sorry, but the man had no life. Life is meant to live and enjoy, not to live just to subsist.
From the Union Leader:
DURHAM — Officials at the University of New Hampshire announced Tuesday that an unexpected benefactor left $4 million to the school.
Robert Morin, who died at the age of 77 in March 2015, was a cataloguer at UNH’s Dimond Library for nearly 50 years. His obituary said he was the man who wrote short descriptions of DVDs, entered ISBN numbers of CDs, and cataloged books of sheet music.
Morin was born in Nashua and attended school there before heading to UNH. He graduated in 1961 and went on to obtain his master’s degree in library science from Simmons College in Boston. Morin started working at Dimond in 1965, retiring in 2014.
Morin decided to leave all his money to the university because he didn’t have any relatives that he wanted to leave it to. He trusted the university to spend the money wisely for the students there. He made just one specific request… that $100,000 go to the Dimond Library where he worked. It is earmarked to create scholarships for work-study students, support staff members who continue their studies in library science and renovate and upgrade one of the library’s multimedia rooms.
$2.5 million will be used to expand and launch a centrally located career center for students and alumni. Another $1 million will be used for a video scoreboard for the new football stadium. In the last 15 months of his life, Morin lived in a Durham assisted-living center where he started watching football games on television. He evidently loved the game. He was a movie addict as well.
In addition to liking football, Morin was an avid reader. He read, in chronological order, every book published in the United States from 1930 to 1940, excluding children’s books, textbooks and books about cooking and technology. At the time of his death, he had reached 1938, the year of his birth.
It was a final kind gesture to leave his money to the school and will help the university immensely.
