Rare Benjamin Graham Interview From 1976Rupert Hargreaves
Benjamin Graham is generally considered to be the Godfather of value investing. His books, the Intelligent Investor and Security Analysis, which was written with his partner, David Dodd, have become the bibles of value investing and essential reading for any investors who want to take up the discipline.
Graham's record as an investor was impressive. After a significant setback in 1929, when Graham and his partners nearly lost everything in the market panic, the Graham Newman Partnership recovered steadily over the next few decades, enjoying an average annual return of 17% until 1956. The first edition of Security Analysis was published in 1934 and the Intelligent Investor was published in 1949.
