Multimillionaires without High School Diplomas

Francois Pinault

With holdings like Christie's Auction House, Gucci, Samsonite and Puma, it's hard to believe the third-richest man in France quit high school in 1947 to work at his father's lumber mill. One reason he quit school: Classmates made fun of his poor background. Poetic justice: At last count, the retail kingpin and father-in-law to actress Salma Hayek has amassed an $8.7 billion fortune.
