Date: born 1930
Remarks: Henry Ross Perot began his career as a businessman, forming a computer data service in 1962. Thirty years later, in 1992, after selling his first company to General Motors and starting a new one, Perot entered politics, running as an independent presidential candidate. In 1995, he founded a new political party, the Reform party, and again ran for president. Although he finished third in both elections, Perot remains an important figure within the Reform party. - Source:
