From the Paper:

"Buffett was born in 1930. As a child, Buffett already showed himself to be ambitious--he was an enthusiastic and industrious paper boy for the Washington Post, trying to cover more than one route at the same time, and he also made money by collecting and selling lost golf balls. His interest in finance was also apparent extremely early in his life when he started playing the stock market with one of his sisters when he was eleven. When he was twelve, he was betting on horses, and by high school he had started a business (pinball machines) with a friend, a business which earned him fifty dollars a week. By graduation, he not only owned his own business, but he also had purchased forty acres of Nebraskan farm land with his profits."
