Walter Schloss (quote)
Walter Schloss is not nearly as well known as other investors such as Warren Buffett but Schloss has gained a reputation as one of the best value investors ever. Like Buffett, Schloss was a direct student of Benjamin Graham, and is one of the "Super Investors"...
...mentioned by Warren Buffett in his famous essay, The Super Investors of Graham-And-Doddsville.
Schloss was born in 1916 and passed away during 2012 at the age of 95. Schloss stopped actively managing other people’s money in 2003. He then became a treasurer for the Freedom House, a non-profit group devoted to furthering democracy and human rights.
Buffett called Schloss a "superinvestor" in a 1984 speech at Columbia Business School and Buffett saluted Schloss as "one of the good guys of Wall Street" in his 2006 letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders.
