The ghost of Dick Clark is on double secret probation ... because TMZ has learned the legend earmarked $1 MILLION of his fortune for his college frat ... and that's a lot of beer.

According to legal docs filed by the Clark Estate trustees, Dick gave the loot to the Delta Kappa Epsilon Foundation in New York, which handles finances for the frat's chapters around the country.

Dick passed away last April ... and various money issues are still being hashed out.

FYI, Clark was a DKE bro while he attended Syracuse University from 1947-1951.

Toga! Toga! Toga! Toga!

What an absolutely shallow creep this guy was to the end! In life, his businesses employed poor people and paid them so badly that they could never have made ends meet; in death, he gives money to those who don't need it. I hope he's remembered exactly as he was. He deserves every bit of that.

I would have expected him to be more responsible, like maybe donating that million to the care of sick babies.

I just realized part of the reason Clark was so scary-looking when he had his stroke. When you see these three picture side by side, you can tell he had a nose job that shortened it somewhere along the way; the natural turn of events would have been to see it look longer in the most recent shot.
