Born on October 4th 1925, William (Bill) Ruane initially graduated from University of Minnesota with a degree in electric engineering in 1945, and then attended Harvard Business School in 1949. Right after graduating from Harvard, he went straight in the world of Wall Street, however, he realized the need to get a better idea of the business world or more specifically the investment world. Ruane enrolled himself at Columbia University in 1951 to study under Benjamin Graham; at that time he met Warren Buffett, who was enrolled there as a student as well.

Warren Buffett recognizes Ruane as one of the ‘super-investors of Graham-and-Doddsville’ (required reading for all Value Walk readers). Buffett has mentioned Ruane in one of his writing acknowledging as the only proficient investor he felt was worthy of being recommended to his investment partners.
