Paul Allen founded Microsoft (MSFT) with Bill Gates in 1975, several years after the two met as fellow students at a private school in Seattle.
Allen left the company in 1982 after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. (Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, like the less-common Hodgkin’s disease, is a cancer of the lymphatic system.)
He didn’t slow down after leaving Microsoft. He stayed on the company’s board of directors for several years while establishing his own philanthropic foundation, along with Vulcan, his investment firm.
He was an investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist who influenced many aspects of modern life — from technology and science to sports and music.
