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

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
