After being presented a signed 2010-2011 KU men's basketball, David Booth, chairman and CEO of Dimensional Fund Advisors, shakes hands with Jack Arensberg. Booth's first job was working for Jack at Arensbergs shoes. Booth, a 1964 LHS graduate and owner of the original rules of basketball, was the keynote speaker at the event.
David Booth, a 1964 LHS graduate, entertained more than 550 attendees at Friday’s Community Education Breakfast by sharing tales of how he purchased the rules for $4.33 million, to be displayed at KU; how he founded a financial firm that today has more than $200 billion under management; and how his name now graces the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, which he dubbed “the No. 1 rated business school in this or any other galaxy.”
