Who Am I? quiz answers

Scoring: Give yourself a point if you correctly identified the personality. Then, if and only if you got the personality right, give yourself another point if you correctly identified whether he died in the 1960's. So if you missed the face, it's a zero for that question. (The original quiz is posted here.)

1. Secretary of State Dean Acheson
Died during the 60's? NO, 1971

2. Pro football player Eugene "Big Daddy" Lipscomb
YES, 1963

3. Composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein
NO, 1990

4. Astronaut Virgil "Gus" Grissom
YES, 1967

5. General Douglas MacArthur
YES, 1964

6. Singer Nat "King" Cole
YES, 1965

7. Dr. Albert Schweitzer
YES, 1965

8. Actor James Dean
NO, 1955

9. Author/philosopher Aldous Huxley
YES, 1963

10. Poet Robert Frost
YES, 1963

11. Comedian Lenny Bruce
YES, 1966

12. Film director Alfred Hitchcock
NO, 1980

And a big "Way to go!" if you recognized Eugene Lipscomb or Aldous Huxley. Also, recognizing an elderly Douglas MacArthur or a shriveled Robert Frost is pretty good too.
