Larry Tesler was born in New York. He studied computer science from Stanford University. In 1973, he joined the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).
The story of cut, copy and paste user interface begins with this. Tesler collaborated with Tim Mott at PARC to create a Gypsy text editor.
In this Gypsy text editor, he prepared a modal method to copy and move the text. The cut, copy and paste term was invented from here itself.
Larry Tessler writes in his CV that he is the early inventor of modeless editing and cut copy paste. However, he also wrote in the CV that he was mistakenly called the Father of Graphical User Interface for Macintosh.
Such an amazing Technique of cut, copy and paste.

Larry Tesler developed cut, copy and paste in PARC itself. However, later this concept of cut, copy, and paste came for computer interfaces and text editors.
The PARC company that Larry worked in is credited with the early graphical user interface and mouse navigation.
Significantly, Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs also used this research of PARC to improve Apple products. It is said that when Steve Jobs came to Xerox, Larry Tesler was also present in the same team.
