8 Year-Old Henry Kravis Wasn't About To Let His Cousin Get A Free Ride

Author:

Kravis and Roberts first cousins; Kravis' mother and Roberts' father were siblings. Both learned the energy business from their fathers. Roberts' father was an oil broker in Houston who took his son to business meetings; Kravis' father was a petroleum engineer in Tulsa. The Kravis and Roberts families spent summers and holidays together, and the future lions of Wall Street swear they haven't had an argument since they were 8 years old.1 The last one involved who would get to ride Kravis' new bicycle first.

1. Obviously when one pictures an 8 year-old Henry Kravis one pictures Kravis's current face/head on a child's body.↩
