The 100-year-old screenwriter is best known for developing some of the most beloved 70’s sitcoms such as “All in the Family,” “One Day at a Time,” “Sanford and Son,” “Good Times,” among many more.
The TV personality, who came through a humble background has made most of his wealth from the entertainment industry.
As per a report by Brittanica, Lear had graduated from Weaver High School in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1940.
Later he went on to study at Emerson College in Boston. However, his college education was cut short in between as the star dropped out in 1942 to join the US Air Force to fight in World War II.
According to Celebrity Net Worth portal, the star had flown 52 combat missions and earned an Air Medal for his services.
After returning from the war, he began working in public relations in Los Angeles trying to carve his way out in the entertainment career.
He got his break in 1954, when he landed a job as a writer for “Honestly, Celeste!,” It was CBS’ new sitcom.
Later he went on and worked as a producer of another sitcom titled “The Martha Raye Show.” Though both of these gigs were short-lived, it provided him with valuable experience in show business and helped him open new doors.

In 1971, he directed the famous comedy “Cold Turkey.” He even started a show “All in the Family.” Though it was rejected by ABC after two pilot episodes, it was then picked up by CBS.
