William Crapo Durant Durant was born on December 8 1861 in Boston, Massachusetts, though he was raised in Flint, Michigan. Durant was 16 years old when he quit school over a discrepancy in morals with the school's principal. Although Durant was not a physically well-built boy, his mind was quick and energetic.
