Larry Ellison - May 30th

Larry Ellison --- called the "Prophet of Software", he is a business magnate, co-founder and chief executive of Oracle Corporation. Ellison was listed on the Forbes List of Billionaires as the fifth richest man in the world. Ellison is the third richest American, with a net worth of $43 billion. Larry was born in the Bronx, New York. At nine months, he contracted pneumonia, and his unmarried 19-year-old mother gave him to her aunt and uncle in Chicago to raise. Until he was twelve years old he did not know that he was adopted. He met his mother for the first time when he was 48. From an early age, he showed a strong aptitude for math and science, and was a bright but inattentive student. After dropping out of three universities, Larry's adoptive father was convinced that he would never make anything of himself, but the seemingly aimless young man had already learned the rudiments of computer programming. He took this skill with him to Berkeley, arriving with just enough money for fast food and a few tanks of gas. Eight years later, the Oracle Corporation was a multi-million dollar business.
