Henry Zarrow (1916-2014) On Tulsans

Henry Zarrow, Tulsa businessman and philanthropist, passed away Saturday at the age of 97. Many local charities and organizations, including the Tulsa City-County Library, benefited from Mr. Zarrow's generosity. Mr. Zarrow, though, was quick to deflect praise, often assuring interviewers that Tulsans, in general, were the generous ones: 

"Tulsa people are always willing to help. Sometimes they just have to have time to think about it."

"I see how great the Tulsa people are in giving and helping. The $5, the $25...it amounts to quite a bit of money over a period of time."
