WSJ.com - Former Philip Morris CEO Dies: "After attending Yale University, he worked at a cigar store in New York and then went to Cuba to work in a cigar factory. He joined Philip Morris as a vice president, and was named president and chief executive in 1957."

Sounds like this guy had a pretty cool life. And he lived to be 92. Maybe mind over matter actually works. I mean, he was one of the CEOs in 1971 who said "I do not believe that cigarettes are hazardous to one's health." Sounds like, in his case, he was right.
