        Michael R. Bloomberg is the 108th Mayor of the City of New

York. He was born on February 14, 1942 to middle class parents in

Medford, Massachusetts, where his father was the bookkeeper at a local

dairy. Mayor Bloomberg's thirst for information and fascination with

technology was evident at an early age, and led him to Johns Hopkins

University, where he parked cars and took out loans to finance his

education. After his college graduation, he gained an MBA from Harvard

and in the summer of 1966, he was hired by Salomon Brothers to work on

Wall Street.            He quickly advanced through the ranks,

and became a partner in 1972. Soon after, he was supervising all of

Salomon's stock trading, sales and later, its information systems. He

was fired in 1981 after another company acquired Salomon. Michael

Bloomberg used his stake from the Salomon sale to start his...39 company, an endeavor that would revolutionize the way that Wall Street...40

business. As a young trader, he had been amazed at the archaic nature

entered the media business, launching a news service, and then radio,

television, Internet, and publishing operations.           

Nearly 20 years after its founding, Bloomberg LP now employs more than

8,000 people - including 2,500 in New York City - in more than 100

offices worldwide. As the company enjoyed tremendous growth, Michael

Bloomberg dedicated more of his time and energy to philanthropy and

civic affairs. His desire to improve education, advance medical research

and increase access to the arts, has provided the motivation for much

of his philanthropy.            The Mayor served as the Chairman

of the Board of Trustees of Johns Hopkins University until May 2002.

Recently, he was honored by Johns Hopkins University, when its

School of Hygiene and Public Health was renamed "The Bloomberg School

of Public Health," a tribute to his leadership and use of philanthropy
