Alice Walton

Alice Walton, only daughter of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. founder Sam Walton and his wife, Helen, finally saw the museum she founded open on Nov. 11, 2011, to almost universal acclaim. The museum is the second-largest nonprofit in Arkansas, behind only the Walton Family Foundation, with assets of almost $1.2 billion as of the end of 2012. Since that latest IRS report, however, the museum has announced a number of acquisitions that likely push its assets far higher.
