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.

As a young trader, he had been amazed at the archaic nature in which information was stored.

As the business proved its viability, the company branched out and in 1990 Bloomberg LP 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 to improve the human...43.
In 1997, Michael Bloomberg published his autobiography, Bloomberg by Bloomberg. All of the royalties from sales of the book are donated to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
