On August 6, 1926, she became the first woman to swim across the English Channel. The time was 14 hours and 34 minutes. She was greeted by a British immigration officer who requested a passport from the tired waterlogged teen.
4. US VP candidate

Answer: John Edwards

John Edwards, Senator from North Carolina, was John Kerry's selection for vice president in 2004 but lost to the Bush/Cheney ticket. He conducted two personal primary campaigns for president in 2008 and 2012. His career suffered a blow as he began an affair in 2007 with Rielle Hunter with whom he sired a love child in 2008.

His wife Elizabeth was an asset in the 2004 campaign but was diagnosed with cancer that same year. In the public eye he was viewed as deserting his cancer-stricken wife for the affair. Elizabeth died in 2010.

6. Jazz band leader

Answer: Ellington

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was one of the musicians and jazz band leaders who help to bring jazz out of the back room to an art form. He spent fifty years playing, composing, and promoting his music. The New York elite flocked to Harlem's Cotton Club to hear his music in the 1930s. He seldom used the word 'jazz' but referred to the genre as 'American music'. Ellington's appearance at the Newport Jazz Festival in July 1956 revived his career and found his band in demand domestically and internationally.

By the way, how did you get to the Cotton Club? You took the "A Train".
7. Tennis

Answer: Evert

8. Light bulb

Answer: Edison

Thomas Edison called to fact that invention was more perspiration than inspiration. He meant that a new invention was the result of many trial and error efforts. Tungsten was not the first element tried for the filament of the light bulb. What would our world be like without motion pictures, sound recording, and other improvements on other inventions? Modern technology has brought many of his inventions to a spectacular level.
9. Transcendentalism

Answer: Emerson

Transcendentalism was an idealistic philosophical movement in New England in 1836. It taught that God pervades all nature and humanity. Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau were central figures. Emerson took the more intellectual approach in his essays, poems, and lectures. His friend Thoreau chose to live those principles by his stay at Walden Pond.

Emerson's most famous essay is "Self Reliance"(1841). Emerson's themes are for each individual to avoid conformity and false consistency, and follow their own instincts.
10. Jeannie

Answer: Eden

Barbara Eden's characterization of the genie Jeannie was something of a television landmark in the sitcom "I Dream of Jeannie" (1965-1970). Larry Hagman played the astronaut who becomes her master, with whom she falls in love and eventually marries. Jeannie has skimpy costumes but the network would not allow her to show her belly button.

The bottle that she lived in and disappeared into with a puff of smoke was actually an old Jack Daniels whiskey bottle.
