>From a UPI Story - in 1975.  In many papers - the earliest I found was The Daily Messenger (Canandaigua New York) March 6 1975, page 11.  This version does not mention his grade, and downplays how well developed his plan was while he was in school:



"He says he actually got the idea for Federal Express when he was a 
student at Yale and did a paper in economics class on air transportation
 but it didn't crystallize until later. . . . ."
