    Sure, that's Amelia Earhart, who took off on a solo flight in 1937 and was never heard from again.

    Like so many aviation pioneers. Australia had her fair share that met same fate as Earhart. Charles Kingsford Smith, Ross Smith, Charles Ulm, Herbert Hinkler, May Shepherd.

    @Craig Swanson: . I guess I was wrong about his mouth. That's the first picture I've ever seen of him where you could even see his mouth at all.;) See, I'm no good at this, and even if I recognized the face I probably couldn't think of the name right off the top of my head.

    Samuel Clemens (I Googled Tom Sawyer and the picture popped up)

    He never held a political office, but was involved heavily in politics.
