Here's I. M. Pei.
Chinese-born American architect; designed Louvre Pyramids; Rock&Roll HoF

Not sure I like the contraction of Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame to beat the guillotine on number of characters but the semi-colon after Pyramids should make him an inductee of the Hall of Fame rather than its designer.

Georg Ossian Sars - definition includes 'son of Michael Sars'. Mind you, I was glad to see that as I'd never heard of him!

I'm none the wiser - he's going to the top of the list instead of the bottom, as I am intrigued to find out more.

You will let me know if Odd's sibling's name is Even, won't you? wink

Haven't got time to work up a new description until at least this evening when I get home from work, maybe tomorrow morning if I am as exhausted this evening as in previous nights this week - but I will post it here. I will also check if any of the others have entries, and what modifications might be needed for them. It has surprised me to find a number of people identified by relatives who aren't listed in their own right.

Uncle Olav looks the most interesting one of the Aukrust family, although they'd none of them appeared on my radar until today.
