I have no recollection of when or where I first heard or read about this person. Many years have passed since I first learned that this person had once lived in Maplewood. Quite a lot more time passed before I learned any more than that about this person. The first time I googled this person’s name it turned up very little. Since then I have uncovered enough data to make me believe that this person is the most famous Maplewoodian ever!
Watch this space. In a few days I’ll reveal details of this person’s life and how I came to the conclusion that this person is our MOST famous Maplewoodian. If you’d like to try and guess the identity of this person, have at it. Here are a few clues.
- I don’t think that I have ever mentioned this person’s name in my blog. I might be wrong about that what with my memory being what it is these days.
- This person is a towering figure in his/her discipline.
- It’s not Bruce Springsteen.
I will award a free copy of my “Second Printing, Volume One” of my now legendary (by some accounts) “The First One Hundred Years – Maplewood MO” book to the FIRST person who guesses correctly (in the comments section below) my choice of the Most famous Maplewoodian of all time.
Watch this space. I think you’ll be amazed.
