Abraham Lincoln
Name: Abraham Lincoln
Birth Date: February 12, 1809
Death Date: April 14, 1865
Place of Birth: Hodgenville, Kentucky, United States
Place of Death: Washington, DC, United States
Nationality: American
Gender: Male
Occupations: president
Sixteenth president of the United States and president during the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was immortalized by his Emancipation Proclamation, his Gettysburg Address, and two outstanding inaugural addresses. was born in Hardin (now Larue) County, Ky., on Feb. 12, 1809. His family moved to Indiana and then to Illinois, and Lincoln gained what education he could along the way. In 1855, he was a candidate for senator and the next year he joined the new Republican Party.

A leading but unsuccessful candidate for the vice-presidential nomination with Fremont, Lincoln gained national attention in 1858 when, as Republican candidate for senator from Illinois, he engaged in a series of debates with Stephen A. Douglas, the Democratic candidate. He lost the election, but continued to prepare the way for the 1860 Republican convention and was rewarded with the presidential nomination on the third ballot. He won the election over three opponents.

Lincoln's long search for a winning combination finally brought generals Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman to the top; and their series of victories in 1864 dispelled the mutterings from both Radicals and Peace Democrats that at one time seemed to threaten Lincoln's reelection. He was reelected in 1864, defeating Gen. George B. McClellan, the Democratic candidate. His inaugural address urged leniency toward the South: “With malice toward none, with charity for all . . . let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds . . .” This policy aroused growing opposition on the part of the Republican Radicals, but before the matter could be put to the test, Lincoln was shot by the actor John Wilkes Booth at Ford's Theater, Washington, on April 14, 1865. He died the next morning.

Place of Death: England
Nationality: English

Educated at Cambridge, he worked under Ernest Rutherford at Manchester, where he collaborated with H. G. J. Moseley in fundamental work on X-ray diffraction by crystals. Following World War I he became a fellow and lecturer at Christ's College, Cambridge, where he and R. H. Fowler developed new methods of statistical mechanics that later served as a foundation for quantum statistics. Professor at Edinburgh from 1924 to 1936 and master of Christ's College from 1936, he directed the National Physical Laboratory during World War II, leaving the post in 1949. The last 15 years of his life were devoted to the study of the sociological implications of the population explosion, as reflected in his book The Next Million Years (1953).
 
 
Name: Francis Bacon
Birth Date: October 28, 1909
Death Date: April 28, 1992
Place of Birth: Dublin, Ireland
Place of Death: Madrid, Spain
Nationality: English
Gender: Male
Occupations: painter, artist
The English artist Francis Bacon (1909-1992) was one of the most powerful and original figure painters in contemporary art, particularly noted for the obsessive intensity of his work.

A self-taught artist, Bacon became the center of a storm of controversy with his Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion (1944; Tate Gall., London), which portrayed carcasslike figures on crosses. He painted a series of variations on figural themes, e.g., Van Gogh Goes to Work, Velazquez's Innocent X. Often large in scale, Bacon's works focus on shockingly grotesque and brutally satiric themes. From the 1950s on his images become increasingly distorted and abstract, sometimes merging human and animal forms.

Place of Birth: Cleveland, Ohio, United States
Nationality: American
Gender: Male
Occupations: actor, humanitarian
After performing for several years in television dramas, Newman became a versatile film actor. His enduring characterization is of an insolent, self-reliant antihero with a penchant for wry humor, as seen in The Hustler (1961), Hud (1963), Cool Hand Luke (1967), Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), and The Sting (1973). He won an Academy Award for The Color of Money (1986) after eight nominations. Later films include Blaze (1988), Mr. and Mrs. Bridge (1990), and Twilight (1998). Newman has directed several movies, usually showcases for his wife and frequent costar, Joanne Woodward.

Place of Death: Paso Robles, California, United States
Nationality: American
Gender: Male

Actor James Dean (1931-1955) had a short-lived but intense acting career that began in 1952 and ended tragically in his death in September 1955. After his death he became a cult figure, and fans have marveled for decades at his ability to duplicate their adolescent agony on screen.

After a few stage and television roles, Dean was chosen to play the moody, rebellious son in the film East of Eden (1953). He was further identified with restless, inarticulate youth in his second film Rebel without a Cause (1954). Dean was killed when his racing car crashed the day after he finished work on Giant (1955). His death set off a worldwide wave of cultist mourning unequaled since the death of Rudolph Valentino.
 
 
Name: Jules Verne
Birth Date: February 8, 1828
Death Date: March 24, 1905
Place of Birth: Nantes, France
Place of Death: Amiens, France
Nationality: French
Gender: Male
Occupations: novelist, writer
The French novelist Jules Verne (1828-1905) was the first authentic exponent of modern science fiction. The best of his work is characterized by intelligent predictions of technical achievements actually within man's grasp at the time Verne wrote.

After completing his studies at the Nantes lycee, he went to Paris to study law. He early became interested in the theater and wrote (1848–50) librettos for operettas. For some years his concerns alternated between business and the theater, but after 1863 he drew upon his interest in science and geography to write a series of romances of extraordinary journeys, in which he anticipated, with remarkable foresight, many scientific and technological achievements of the 20th cent.

Extremely popular, he wrote more than 50 books by the time he died. Plays and motion pictures have been made from many of his works, which are still widely read, particularly by the young. In 1989 the manuscript of Verne's long-lost 1863 novel Paris in the 20th Century was discovered; the pessimistic and prophetic futurist work was published in 1994.
 
 
Name: Lewis Carroll
Variant Name: Charles L. Dodgson
Birth Date: January 27, 1832
Death Date: January 14, 1898
Place of Birth: England
Place of Death: England
Nationality: English
Gender: Male
Occupations: cleric, author, mathematician
The English cleric Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), who wrote under the name Lewis Carroll, was the author of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. He was also a noted mathematician and photographer.

Carroll is chiefly remembered as the author of the famous children's books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass (1872), both published under his pseudonym and both illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. He developed these stories from tales he told to the children of H. G. Liddell, the dean of Christ Church College, one of whom was named Alice. Many of his characters—the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, the White Rabbit, the Red Queen, and the White Queen—have become familiar figures in literature and conversation. Although numerous satiric and symbolic meanings have been read into Alice's adventures, the works can be read and valued as simple exercises in fantasy. Carroll himself said that in the books he meant only nonsense. He also wrote humorous verses, the most popular of them being The Hunting of the Snark (1876). His later stories for children, Sylvie and Bruno (1889) and Sylvie and Bruno Concluded (1893), though containing interesting experiments in construction, are widely regarded as failures.

Carroll remained a bachelor all his life. Partly because of his stammer he found association with adults difficult and was most at ease in the company of children, especially little girls, with whom he was clearly obsessed. Early in 1856 he took up photography as a hobby; his photographs of children are still considered remarkable.
 
 
Mia Farrow
Name: Mia Farrow
Born: 09/02/1945
Place of Birth: California, USA
Field: Entertainment
Mia Farrow was the daughter of film star Maureen O'Sullivan and director John Farrow. She fell victim to polio at age 9, but recovered. Educated in an English convent school, she returned to California with plans to take up acting.

Actress whose intelligent and sensitively shaped roles have more often been overshadowed by her relationships with major entertainers, including Frank Sinatra, Andre Previn, and Woody Allen. Farrow's early movies included Rosemary's Baby (1965) and The Great Gatsby (1974), in which she played Daisy Buchanan. Farrow and Allen collaborated successfully in such well regarded movies as Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) before their relationship exploded in scandal, as Allen became romantically linked with Mia's daughter from a previous marriage, Soon-Yi Previn.
 
 
Name: Norman Kingsley Mailer
Birth Date: 1923
Place of Birth: Long Branch, New Jersey, United States
Nationality: American
Gender: Male
Occupations: author, director
Norman Kingsley Mailer (born 1923), American author, film producer and director, wrote one of the most noteworthy American novels about World War II. Only in his later political journalism did he reach that level of achievement again.

Several recent novels have been long and intricate and have met with decidedly mixed reviews: Ancient Evenings (1983) is set in pharaonic Egypt; Harlot's Ghost (1991) is a complex cold-war spy novel. A shorter detective novel, Tough Guys Don't Dance (1984), was made into a film in 1985. Among his other works are The White Negro (1958), Advertisements for Myself (1959), and Marilyn (1973).

He grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., served in the army during World War II, and at the age of 25 published The Naked and the Dead (1948), one of the most significant novels to emerge from the war. His next two novels, Barbary Shore (1951) and The Deer Park (1955), were generally considered failures. More successful was An American Dream (1966), an exploration of sex, violence, and death in America through the experiences of his semiautobiographical protagonist.
