Ask The History Buff

Earlier this past week we wrote an introductory bio on poet Sylvia Plath. We were first introduced to this fascinating woman by our good friend Andy, and therefore dedicated this entry to him.

This got us to thinking, why not ask our readers who they would like to see and entry written on. It can be a historical figure, or event, and we have wide ranging categories to choose from, perhaps even a film based on history.

Not only may we have the fun, and challenge to learn, and write about something new, but in return we will be happy to dedicate, and link the entry back to you if, and when we use your suggestion.

So go ahead, your imagination, and the skies the limit, leave us a comment, and let us know who or what you'd like to see featured in this blog!


Sue & Matthew

I would very much like to see you write something about... Oooh...

Here's a good one. The founder of the Mormon Church!

Don't ask why. But I believe there are links to Preston in Lancashire, near my home town of Chorley which is now home to the largest Mormon community outside Salt Lake City. Weird yet true.

I've also got one more. I would like for you to write something about Ezekiel, as in the Bible: who was he? What was the wheel all about? Was he even real?

And because those two are such toughies, a relatively easy one to top them off: Charlie Chaplin! x

Hmmmm some nice obscure ones I guess....and partners of the famous maybe? Sylvia or Christabel Pankhurst rather than Emmeline I guess, Emily Bronte rather than Charlotte...and maybe some recent literary gems...Angela Carter for instance, or Rumer Godden....

Khlari -> Thank you! I do recognize a couple of the names you've listed, but not all! This will definitely pose a challenge, and good learning opportunity .. :)

I was looking to see whatever happened to William Billy Sherring (gold medalist 1906, Athens) after 1908 when he coached the Canadian Olympic team in London?

Did he marry?
To who?
Did he have kids?

Do you know?
best wishes, David
