Ed Zimmer's StoryLifelong entrepreneur
A lot of people think they’re self-made men, but Ed really was. A son of a New Hampshire dirt farmer, he lost his mother when he was only two years old and was educated in a one-room schoolhouse. He dropped out of school and left home when he was 14, surviving on his wits along the Eastern Seaboard. At 18 he joined the US Navy where he completed the high school equivalency exam and then later graduated from the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
