Sidney Harman founded Harman Kardon back in 1953 and he didn't stop working for the company until 55 years later.  He officially retired from the company in 2008 at the age of 88. During his life, Harman was a philanthropist and a strong proponent of quality of working life programs.  He even co-authored a book on the subject with Daniel Yankelovich in 1988, entitled 'Starting With the People.' 

He also sat on the board of trustees at the Washington DC Shakespeare Theater Company. In 2010, at the age of 90, Harman bought Newsweek from the Washington post and put his efforts to restoring the magazine to relevance. Harman died at age 92 of complications from acute myeloid leukemia.  The company he founded and worked for  will be paying tribute to them in their own way - with a series of limited edition Sidney Harman commemorative products.
