An odd one today - the name just says 'Isley', no first name, and the answer includes 'member of the Isley Brothers'.

Elizabeth II
Your answer: British royalty; current head of the UK & Commonwealth

The 'current' will prove wrong at some point. Why not fix it now?
Is the Commonwealth the end of the answer? There are Commonwealths she has nothing to do with. Should that read British Commonwealths?

I'll leave it up to LT to decide if she wants to remove the word 'current'. However, the Commonwealth's full title is the 'Commonwealth of Nations' and not the British Commonwealth - and its accepted short form is simply to be called 'The Commonwealth'. It's pretty clear which Commonwealth is meant by its proximity to the 'UK' - no one would assume that means 'head of the UK and Commonwealth of Massachusetts' or anywhere else.

Christopher Cockerell was knighted in 1969. I've seen "Sir" before a lot of the others, so wasn't sure if he should have "Sir" in front of his name as well. Posting, just in case.

Marjorie Joyner
African-American businesswoman; inventor; maybe the 1st African-American woman to receive a patent

According to African American Women Inventors: Historical the first patent granted to an African-American woman was in 1885. Marjorie Joyner's was in 1928.
(The "maybe" caught my attention, so I went looking.)

13. Albert Gallatin

The correct answer was Swiss-American ethnologist; linguist; politician; diploma; longest serving Secretary of the Treasury


I think the T is missing at the end of diploma.
