FRANKLIN -- Historical Honorary Member
Benjamin Franklin, LFHCfS
"The club would be incomplete without Ben Franklin (1706-1790), one of history's greatest scientists. And unlike certain other celebrated scientists with long hair, Ben's was all natural, not some fancy wig."

"I would like to nominate Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) -- arguably history's greatest physicist, the inventor of the calculus, and hair like a rock star."
