A wealthy construction industry leader in Birmingham, Alabama. Married Marguerite. In 2006 two of his children were entangled in a family feud, with Marguerite suing Raymond for profits from the family firm and claiming he is "an incapacitated person". Families, eh?
John Murdoch Harbert III was born on 19 July 1921 in Greenville, Washington County, Mississippi, USA, the eldest of the three children of John Murdoch Harbert II (1887-1964) and Mae MacGregor Harbert née Schooling (1893-1986). His two siblings were: Billy LeBold Harbert (1923-2010) and Bettie Lee Harbert (1923-1940).
He served as a private in the U.S. Army during World War Two.
On 30 June 1951 he married Marguerite Nabers 'Wita' Jones (1923-2015) at St Mary's-in-the-Highlands Episcopal Church, Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama, USA and they had two sons and a daughter.
His Wikipedia page gives much information about this man as does the Find a Grave website that shows that he died, aged 73 years on 31 March 1995 in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama, USA and was buried in Block 26 in the Elmwood Cemetery, 600 Martin Luther King Jr Drive, Birmingham, AL 35211, USA.
He is shown as John Harbert III on both the base of The Vitruvian Man sculpture and on the associated plaque in Belgrave Square, London, SW1.
