Family

He was born to Edwin Eugene Aldrin Sr. and Marion Aldrin, and lived in neighboring Montclair.

His father was an Army aviator during World War I and the assistant commandant of the Army’s test pilot school at McCook Field, Ohio, from 1919 to 1922, but left the Army in 1928 and became an executive at Standard Oil.

Aldrin had two sisters: Madeleine, who was four years older, and Fay Ann, who was a year and a half older.

His nickname, which became his legal first name in 1988, arose as a result of Fay’s mispronouncing “brother” as “buzzer”, which was then shortened to “Buzz”.
