The bequest announced Thursday was left to the Clinic by Gus Karos, who worked in the restaurant business.

The bequest will be used to support a registry database started in the 1960's for cardiovascular research.

Along with earlier gifts Karos has donated more than $26 million to the research hospital.

Karos was born in Joliet, Ill., moved to Cleveland in 1960 and retired in 2000.
