The Number of the Day: $568,106


Canadian attorney Charles Millar died a childless bachelor, but he left $568,106 to the woman who gave birth to the most children in Toronto in the 10 years following his 1928 death.

Related Fact: This bequest prompted what Canadians called the "Baby Derby" (also the "Great Stork Derby"). Four women ended up splitting the prize—each had nine babies.
