    Hi, Moon,



    Not really known as a writer although he wrote an autobiography. This hero is better known for his athletic feats and knowledge in related and other areas. He's the one on the right as you view the monitor.

    HARRY MILLER.?


    No, but Harry Miller is a good guess. He was born around the same time as our hero but died about 30 years earlier. Miller was focused on racing while hero had multi areas of focus that he was well known for, including racing.

    Hi, Moon,



    Our hero was portrayed twice in films, but neither time by Anthony Hopkins. Sorry.

    Our hero had several close to death experiences, one of them on a life raft for almost a month.

    Hi, Roger,



    That's a witty reply! Our hero was a close buddy of President Teddy Roosevelt's son. And without spelling it out, we know he's an American.

    What took you so long, Mr. Wadsy. :-) Well done!! Yes, it is Eddie Rickenbacker... the daring, WWI legendary ace flier, recipient of the Medal of Honor, inventor, head of Eastern Airlines, crack race car driver, owner of Indianapolis Speedway...and that's just for starters.







    Carry on,



    Barbara
