Calendar of Famous Births/Deaths

So here is the challenge:

I'll add a famous person's birthday or date of their passing into the list of dates below.
Feel free to edit this with additional people. Also please leave in the comments what method you are using to memorise them. I haven't figured out yet which method to use!!

We'll start with october as this is the month that this list is starting!

Famous birthdays can be found by looking up the wikipedia entry for the given day (thanks for that Josh)

regards,

I've just decided to use 2 digit action object system, then associated the person with the action and the object and put it in a location; e.g. Winston Churchill 1940 would be my friend Winston watching a mouse made out of maple syrup drip down a hill with the colours of the british flag.
