Wiki, Bio, Family, Siblings, Childhood & Education

Larry Ellison was born on August 17, 1944, as Lawrence Joseph Ellison. He was born in Manhattan, New York, in the United States of America. He never met his biological father because he was born to a single Jewish mother. Ellison’s father, on the other hand, was an Italian American pilot in the United States Army Air Corps.

As if it wasn’t enough, he became estranged from his mother. He had pneumonia when he was nine years old. That was too much for his mother to bear. Under those conditions, his mother chose to abandon her. His mother delegated the task of adopting him to his uncle and aunt.

His adoptive mother died when he was in his second year. As a result, he dropped out of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign without ever taking his final exams. He opted to pursue his studies after spending the summer in Northern California. He enrolled at the University of Chicago at that time. For the brief period, he was there, he studied computer design. As a result, despite attending two universities, Ellison never graduated.
