Max Palevsky dies at 85; computer magnate and philanthropist

A founder of Intel, the billionaire donated lavishly to political causes and the arts.


A baron of the early computer industry, he helped found the world's largest chipmaker, Intel. He came up with the cash to save a fledgling magazine called Rolling Stone and bankrolled movies. And he used his immense wealth to build notable art collections that turned the Los Angeles County Museum of Art into a destination for lovers of the Arts and Crafts movement.
