I came across a video on Ben Graham over the weekend that was put together by the Heilbrunn Center at Columbia Business School. The Heilbrunn Center website is itself a great source for value investing, and they did a great job with this video. It’s about 15 minutes long and is filled with short interview highlights with heavy hitter investors such as Warren Buffett, Irving Kahn, and Edwin Schloss (Walter Schloss’ son and investment partner) to name a few.
The most interesting aspect of the video is the actual film highlights from what appears to be one of Ben Graham’s classes at Columbia. There are at least two different highlights of Graham speaking, which I’ve never seen before. In fact, I realized this was the first time I have ever heard Graham’s voice.
The roster of people that Graham taught is incredible. And he taught these guys while he was running his partnership. Buffett said it was like “learning to hit from someone who is currently batting .400.”
It’s a great video packed with short highlights on Graham’s philosophy….
