Sir John Moores

Born: 1896
Birthplace: Eccles, Greater Manchester, England

Having started out distributing coupons for the football pools in Liverpool, a visit to the U.S. convinced him he should be doing mail order. He set up a mail order business in 1932, then opened a retail outlet, the first in the Littlewoods chain, in 1937. The Liverpool Polytechnic took Moores's name when it was awarded university status, becoming Liverpool John Moores University.

Died: 1993
