This list contains writers, musicians, singers, entertainers, actors, poets, political leaders, scientists, astronauts, athletes, activists, educators, comedians, journalists, business moguls, directors, and popular celebrities. Most in this list are living, but some we know as contributors to our history. All are known for their positive contributions, within their own special field of genius. Some of their personal demons have become public news.
