Harman was a businessman and a philanthropist, staying active all his life.
At a certain age, most people start to kick back and take things easy, but that wasn't in the cards for Sidney Harman, founder of Harman Kardon. He worked well into his retirement years, not officially retiring until the age of 88.
After his retirement he took a position at the University of Southern California as a polymath professor. Not long after that, he purchased Newsweek and helped to bring it back into relevance if not yet into financial success.
Harman has announced that they'll be celebrating the man with a limited-edition commemorative product line. They'll also be presenting scholarships. No specific details have yet been announced for either.
