American entrepreneur, the founder of Wal-Mart and Sam's Club and personification of the American Dream of self-made success. A scrappy, bantam-rooster of a boy, he grew up in the poverty of the dusk-bowl. A high-school quarterback, he earned money from delivering papers and selling milk from the family cow and served in the army during WW II. With foresight and vision, he opened his first store in 1945 and parlayed his skill into becoming America's wealthiest man in 40 years.
