Peter Getty—musician, producer, writer and philanthropist—was born in New York City in 1965. At the age of three, his family (his father is Gordon Peter Getty, former CEO of Getty Oil) moved to San Francisco, where he lived, more or less, for the next decade. He spent two years (1974-1976) at Heatherdown Preparatory School in England (David Cameron was a classmate and friend), then returned home and finished at the Town School for Boys in San Francisco. From 1979 to 1983, he attended high school at Exeter Academy. He was accepted to Harvard University, where he majored in English and American Literature. He took a year off from his studies at Harvard to work as a copy editor at Grove Press, graduating with a degree in English in 1987.
