Forbes: 10 Richest U.S. Presidents

Herbert Hoover (1929-1933)

A totally self-made man, the orphaned Hoover studied geology at Stanford, then adroitly applied that knowledge consulting and investing in mines. As early as 1910 he was earning $2.5 million annually in today's dollars. His wealth allowed him to enter public service. While president, he gave his salary to charity.
