Blast from the past

Early flight

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

One of Mississippi’s finest sons, I wrote about what I knew best - the American South. In addition to my two Pulitzer Prizes for FIction, I’m still the only Nobel laureate from the Magnolia State. So, who am I? (scroll down for the answer).

B&W Colorization of the day

The man with no name

In the 50s, few duos reached the success of Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis. Fun fact - they were the highest-paid act in show biz in 1951 (via Wikipedia).

The historical figure is... William Faulkner.
Have a good day and see you tomorrow :)
