Sid Richardson Bass was born on April 9, 1942. His father, Perry Richardson Bass (died 2006), built an oil fortune with uncle, Sid W. Richardson. He graduated from Yale University in 1965, and also has a degree from the Stanford Business School.
Bass took control of the family business in 1968. His investments include oil and gas. Along with his father and two of his brothers, he was the largest shareholder in The Walt Disney Company from 1984 until after the stock market crash in 2001. Bass was forced to sell his Disney holdings as a result of a margin call, and much of the Bass holdings in Disney were acquired by the Griffith family, who also own large equity holdings in Time Warner, MGM/UA, and investment powerhouse KKR. Bass remains a board member of the Griffith Group, although personally owning no shares in Disney himself.
He was listed as the 287th richest person in the world in 2007 by Forbes, with a net worth of US$3.0 billion.
Bass donated $20 million to Yale University for the study of humanities in 1990. In 2006, Bass and his second wife, Mercedes Bass, made a gift of $25 million to the Metropolitan Opera, at the time the largest individual gift in the company's history.
His first wife was Anne Hendricks Bass. Their marriage produced a daughter, Hyatt Bass, and ended in divorce in 1986. In 1988, Bass married the Iranian socialite Mercedes Bass (the former Mercedes Kellogg, nee Mercedes Tavacoli). This marriage ended in divorce in 2011, producing no children.
