Carl Ransom Rogers (1902)
An influential American psychologist, Rogers is best known for having developed the technique of nondirective therapy, in which therapists refrain from offering advice or interpretation so as to allow clients to talk freely. By the 1960s, his method had been widely adopted, and Rogers became one of the best-known professionals in his field. His books include 1961's On Becoming a Person. According to Rogers, what are the characteristics of a fully functioning person living "the good life"? More...

Millard Fillmore (1800)
Born in a log cabin in rural New York, Fillmore was compelled to work at an early age to help support his large, impoverished family. Despite his limited education, he became a lawyer and was elected vice president under Zachary Taylor. Upon Taylor's death in 1850, Fillmore was sworn in as president. His attempt to take a moderate stance on the highly contentious issue of slavery ended his political career. While being fed soup, a dying Fillmore made what remark that turned out to be his last?

Heinrich Schliemann (1822)
As a boy, Schliemann loved Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. After making his fortune, he devoted himself at the age of 36 to searching for the ruins of the ancient city of Troy, which played a prominent role in Homer's account of the Trojan War but was believed to be fictional. In 1873, Schliemann not only found the remains of Troy—verifying the Trojan War's place in history—but also uncovered the ruins of several other cities that had been built on the same site. Where did he find Troy? More...

Constanze Mozart (1762)
When famed Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart died in 1791, he left his beloved 29-year-old wife, Constanze—herself a musician—with two young children and an uncertain financial outlook. Constanze went to work. She arranged for a pension from the emperor, organized memorial concerts, and collaborated on a biography of her late husband. Today, she is recognized as much for her business sense as for her influence on her husband's music. Which of her sisters did Wolfgang originally pursue? More...

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux (1873)
Born into a devout Catholic family, Thérèse entered the convent at Lisieux at age 15. Plagued by depression and guilt, she was prompted by her prioress to write an account of her spiritual development. It describes her "Little Way," an absolute, childlike surrender to God. After her death at 24, the book was published as Story of a Soul, and her grave became a pilgrimage site. Though its national church does not recognize her as such, Catholics consider her a patron saint of what country? More...

Simon Forman (1552)
Forman was arguably the most popular occultist, astrologer, and herbalist in Elizabethan London, despite not possessing a medical degree. He kept detailed records of his unorthodox practice, and his diaries have yielded a wealth of historical information—including contemporary accounts of Shakespeare's plays. He was posthumously implicated in a murder plot that tarnished his reputation and has been characterized as either evil or a quack. What 1611 event is he said to have accurately predicted? More...

I am an author living in New Milford, Ct. and I have written a book that I believe would be of interest to many readers. It is not only the true story of a daring sea rescue, but also gives insight into the world between the wars; the rise of communism, fascism, the true story of the Spanish Civil War as well as the fantastic little known story of how a Marine general saved America from a coup that would have made the United States a fascist nation. It tells of how the pseudoscience of Eugenics led to the Holocaust and the Climate Change movement for those who can take the truth. I welcome all research into the facts that I have presented as it would give the reader much more information on what I have barely touched. Thank you in advance for your time.
