Author Notes

George Walker Bush was born on July 6, 1946 in New Haven, Connecticut to George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States and Barbara Pierce Bush. He received a bachelor's degree in history from Yale University in 1968. After college, he enlisted in the Texas Air National Guard, attaining the rank of Second Lieutenant, and gaining certification to fly the F-102 jet fighter. He remained in the Air National Guard until 1973.

In the early 70's, he worked on various United States Senate campaigns for Republican candidates in Florida and Alabama. He also worked for a firm that specialized in large scale agricultural operations and as part of a student mentor program for children in inner city Houston. He received a M. B. A. from Harvard Business School in 1975. He started an independent oil-exploration company called Arbusto Energy Incorporated, which eventually joined Spectrum 7, where Bush became Chairman. In 1986, Spectrum 7 was folded into Harken Energy Corp., and Bush served as a consultant and a member of the Board of Directors.

In 1987, Bush served as the campaign advisor for his father's run at the presidency. He also held the position of liaison to the media, as well as conservative and Christian leaders. In 1989, he purchased a small interest in the Texas Rangers baseball team, eventually becoming a managing general partner and serving as the public spokesperson for the ownership group. He became the Governor of Texas in 1994. He became the 43rd President of the United States and served from 2001 to 2009.

Since leaving the White House, he has written several books including Decision Points and 41: A Portrait of My Father.
