THIS TIME OF YEAR
Ross Perot Born in Texarkana

H. Ross Perot is known for founding two successful companies, Electronic Data Systems (EDS) in 1962 and Perot Systems in 1988. He also ran the two largest independent campaigns for president in 1992 and 1996. Perot garnered 19 percent of the popular vote in the first election but lost to Bill Clinton both times.

Perot was born in Texarkana on June 27, 1930, and began learning his business acumen from his father who was a cotton trader during the Depression. He began selling seeds and saddles, training horses, and delivering newspapers. He learned to negotiate for himself and became an Eagle Scout at age 13 in roughly 13 months.Ā READ MORE.
