About Newman

Paul Newman not only had an accomplished career in film but was also a big philanthropist. He served in WWII, attended Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, and studied at the Yale School of Drama. He became one of Hollywood's most illustrious movie stars and also had a passion for race car driving. But he said he received the most satisfaction from philanthropy.

In 1982, Newman founded Newman’s Own, Inc., a natural-ingredient food company that donates all after-tax profits and royalties to thousands of charities around the world.
