His timeless Security Analysis and The Intelligent Investor are still considered the "bibles" for both individual investors and Wall Street professionals. Benjamin Graham grew up in New York City and graduated from Columbia University, at whose Graduate School of Business he taught from 1928 to 1957.  From 19?? to 19?? he co-lectured Securities Analysis at Columbia with Irving Kahn.
