Albertan who made his fortune in oil posthumously revealed to be record-setting donor to Calgary Foundation -- to the tune of $117 million (Cdn.)

"Daryl K. Seaman, affectionately known as 'Doc,' wanted it to be a secret. But years after the late Calgary philanthropist gave an unprecedented donation, its recipient, the Calgary Foundation, figured it would only foster his spirit of giving if they shared word of his gesture. Seaman's $117-million gift is the largest charitable donation to a Canadian community foundation in Canadian history and the third largest in charitable giving gift." -- Nadia Moharib, the Calgary Sun
