Unique collector Herbert Vogel died Sunday at the age of 89 from natural causes. The most unlikely of collectors, Vogel and his wife Dorothy began their collection in the early 60s, while Herbert was a clerk for the United States Postal Service (which he remained until his retirement), and Dorothy worked at Brooklyn Public Library. With a modest combined income, the couple lived in a one-bedroom apartment in New York, surrounded by their collection of over 5,000 art works.
