Biography

Early life

Field was born in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, the son of Katherine Woodruff Fanning, an editor of the Christian Science Monitor, and Marshall Field IV, who owned the Chicago Sun-Times. He is an heir to the Field family fortune. At $1.2 billion, Field is #236 on the Forbes list of the 400 richest people.

Career

Field is well known by motor racing enthusiasts for being the boss of Interscope Racing, a successful team that fielded cars in many different categories including IndyCar, Can-Am, sportscars racing and even Formula 1. Danny Ongais was the main pilot of the team, Ted Field himself occasionally took the wheel in some occasions including at 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Interscope Racing started off entering Ongais in Formula 5000 in 1975, graduating to USAC racing and the Indianapolis 500 in Parnelli chassis. Field also funded Ongais to make occasional Formula One outings in a Penske during the 1978 season.

Field also backed the construction in 1980 of an Interscope chassis designed by Roman Slobodinskij for the Indianapolis 500. This was intended to take a turbocharged six-cylinder Porsche engine (similar to the one Ongais and Field were using in their Porsche 935) but a dispute with USAC over turbo boost meant the program was abandoned.

Field then founded Interscope Communications in 1982, which produced more than 50 major films. In 1990, he co-founded Interscope Records. After abruptly leaving Interscope in January 2001, he formed ARTISTdirect Records with the backing of BMG. Ted Field is currently Chairman and CEO of Radar Pictures.
