Kemper Marley amassed a fortune, but was tainted by scandal (allegedly arranging a hit on reporter)--now family "burnishes" his memory through philanthropy.
"When Kemper Marley died, a friend fretted that the land baron and liquor distributor would always be associated with the 1976 death of Arizona Republic reporter Don Bolles. But the passing years, and the work of the foundation Marley started in 1990, have ensured his legacy also includes art galleries, museums and buildings on university campuses." -- Richard Ruelas, the Arizona Republic
