George H.W. Bush was born June 12, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, the second oldest of five children.
Bush graduated from Yale in less than three years with a degree in economics.
Shortly after leaving the Navy, Bush married Barbara Pierce, whom he'd met at a country club dance when he was 17 and she was 16.
The couple moved to Texas in 1964, where Bush made a fortune drilling oil before entering politics.
In 1976, Bush was sworn in as the director of the CIA.
After serving two terms as vice president, Bush ran for president in 1988, selecting Dan Quayle as his running mate.
After four years in office, President Bush ran against independent Ross Perot and Bill Clinton, who defeated him.
Bush's son, George W. Bush, was inaugurated as the 43rd President of the United States on Jan. 20, 2001.
