Twenty points if you can name this man. I was researching my course materials for the upcoming American Dream class and he was a logical subject to explore. He's obviously from a period before my time, so I used the Google machine and read a bit.
I discovered that he was accused of acts that shed a totally different light on his work. The common popular culture references to him that I've seen never mentioned this behavior. Maybe I lead a sheltered life. But I'd be curious to know if any of you knew about his background.
Mystified? I'll give you a few days to see if you can figure it out. Then I'll post the details. I can't wait to find out if my students are aware of this.
