Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Egyptian Air Force Commander, Vice-President, President

Answer: Hosni Mubarak

Hosni Mubarak began his career in the Egyptian Air Force, and eventually earned a bachelor degree in aviation sciences. He became president of Egypt after the assassination of Anwar Sadat (1981), who had appointed him vice president in 1975. He held the office for almost thirty years, winning the important election in 2005, which was Egypt's first multiparty election - ever. In 2011, however, he was forced to give up his office.

Known for human rights violations, he and his sons were found guilty of corruption and ordered to pay fines and serve time in prison. Mubarak's prison sentence was spent most in military hospitals due to health concerns. In 2017 he was acquitted by Egypt's highest appeal court. Hosni Mubarak passed away on February 25, 2020.
2. Commander of Royal Navy, Consort, Duke of Edinburgh Award

Answer: Prince Phillip

Born into the royal families of Greece and Denmark, it would be a gross understatement to say that Prince Phillip had a difficult childhood. Greece, the country of his birth, was in political turmoil, and the family was forced to flee when he was an infant. With both of his parents virtually unavailable, he led a mostly nomadic until the age of nine, when he was sent to England to live with his maternal grandmother and uncle.

Phillip was a cadet at the Royal Naval College in 1939 when his uncle arranged for him to show Princess Elizabeth and her sister around. He went on to a distinguished naval career, serving in the Royal Navy during WWII until 1951, and rising to the rank of Commander in 1952. When he retired from royal duties in 2017, he was the longest serving consort in world history. He had participated in 22,219 solo engagements, given 5,493 speeches, and been the patron of over 780 organizations. One of the organizations he founded is The Duke of Edinburgh Award, which he began in 1956 to encourage self-improvement in young people. Prince Phillip passed away on April 9, 2021, two months before his hundredth birthday.
3. Paleontologist, Director of National Museum of Kenya, Chairman of Kenya Wildfife Service

Answer: Richard Leakey

Born into the famous Leakey family (his parents were Louis and Mary) of paleontologists, Richard reluctantly joined the family business in 1965, after years of trying a variety of other endeavors. It was that year that he joined his father at the Centre for Prehistory and Paleontology; that didn't always mean that Richard and his father saw eye-to-eye on issues, and Richard became involved with efforts to improve the National Museum of Kenya in 1967. He became the Director of the Museum the following year.

During this time his team of paleontologists continued to make important discoveries, such as Turkana Boy (1984), a nearly complete skeleton of "Homo ergaster"; Leakey believed his discoveries proved that Africa was the Cradle of Mankind. He also became involved in conservation in 1989, during a time of growing concern over elephant poaching in Kenya. As Chairman of Kenya Wildlife Service, he raised a few eyebrows when he ordered a store of 12 tons of ivory burned. A conservationist, paleontologist, teacher, and political activist, Richard Leakey passed away on January 2, 2022.
4. NBA Star, Olympian, Oscar winner

Answer: Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant was drafted out of high school by the NBA; to date he is still the youngest player to be drafted. Bryant was chosen 13th in the draft by the Charlotte Hornets, but a subsequent trade sent him to the L.A. Lakers, where he played for twenty years. He still holds the record (as of March 2022) for being the youngest player to start in an NBA game, and the youngest to be chosen to play in an NBA All Star game. Over the course of his 20 seasons, Bryant, a guard, scored 33,643 points and won 5 NBA Championships with his teammates.

In addition, Bryant was a member of two Olympic basketball teams in 2008 and 2012; both teams brought home gold medals. Before his retirement, Bryant authored "Dear Basketball", which became a 5 minute animated film which he narrated. It was a story about how much he had loved basketball over the years, but realized that it was time to retire. The film won the Best Animated Short Film Oscar in 2018. Kobe Bryant passed away on January 26, 2020.
5. Medical anthropologist, Co-founder of Partners in Health, Editor of "Health and Human Rights"

Answer: Paul Farmer

A medical anthropologist studies "human health and disease, health care systems, and biocultural adaptation". Paul Farmer was a medical doctor who worked with people in foreign countries, providing care to impoverished people around the world, but especially in developing countries like Haiti. He was the co-founder of an organization called Partners in Health in 1987, which was a humanitarian group that took health care to people in need in developing countries.

Farmer was the subject of a book in 2003: "Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World", which described his work in Haiti, Russia, and Peru. Since 2007 he had served as the editor for "Health and Human Rights" journal. At the time of Farmer's death, he was working in Rwanda to establish a program to educate medical students at the Butaro District Hospital. Paul Farmer passed away on February 21, 2022.
6. General of the Army, National Security Adviser, U.S. Secretary of State 2001-2005

Answer: Colin Powell

As a young man Colin Powell earned a degree in geology at City College of New York, where he also participated in the ROTC program. When he graduated he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army. His military service began during the Vietnam War, but he served in the Army for thirty-five years, and was promoted to the rank of General in 1989. He served as President Ronald Reagan's National Security Advisor from 1987-89, and helped to negotiate treaties with Mikhail Gorbachev.

From 1989-1993 Powell served as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; it would be his last military appointment, but he was kept busy with the invasion of Panama, Operation Desert Storm, and the Persian Gulf War (1991) during this time. He served President George W. Bush as Secretary of State, giving a speech before the United Nations Security Council in 2003, claiming that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction; this led to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in the same year. It was later discovered that the speech contained several inaccuracies, and Powell's term as Secretary of State ended, even though Bush was reelected. He retired from public life after that, writing books and giving speeches. Colin Powell passed away on October 18, 2021.
7. Director, Producer, Officer of the Order of Canada

Answer: Ivan Reitman

Ivan Reitman's family immigrated to Canada from Czechoslovakia when he was four years old, settling in the Toronto area. In college, even though he majored in music, Reitman began producing and directing short films; this led him to a job at CITY-TV, where he first met his long time friend and associate Dan Aykroyd. Reitman was a movie icon in the 1980s and 1990s; the list of his hit movies is long, but some must be mentioned. He was the producer of "Animal House" (1978) and "Space Jam" (1996); he was the director of "Meatballs" (1979), "Stripes" (1981), "Ghostbusters" (1984), and "Ghostbusters II" (1989).

Reitman became an Office of the Order of Canada in 2009 in recognition of his contributions to the "Canadian film and television industries". In 2012 he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal. Ivan Reitman passed away on February 12, 2022.
8. Daytime Emmy Recipient, World Vision Canada activist, Donated wardrobe to Doe Fund

Answer: Alex Trebek

Working as a game show host, Alex Trebek hosted many shows ("High Rollers", "Double Dare"), but ultimately starred on "Jeopardy!" for 37 years! He received the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host eight times. Has he been difficult to replace on the popular game show? Yes! And that is true, not just because of Trebek's knowledge, personality, and attention to detail. His public fight with stage IV pancreatic cancer was both poignant and inspiring.

Trebek put his hosting experience to use helping people, frequently traveling to countries and taping programs for World Vision Canada, an organization which endeavors to make life better for children, families, and communities. Before his death, Trebek asked that his extensive wardrobe be donated to The Doe Fund, an organization which helps the homeless and other people find employment and maintain a different lifestyle. Alex Trebek passed away on November 8, 2020.
9. Archbishop of Cape Town, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient 1984, Anti-apartheid activist

Answer: Desmond Tutu

Desmond Tutu was born in the Republic of South Africa, and spent his entire life working toward the betterment of the people there. He began as a teacher, but entered the Anglican priesthood in 1960 after becoming upset with the learning conditions of Blacks in schools. After further theological study in England, Tutu returned to South Africa to teach and serve. It was at this time that he also began to protest the policy of apartheid, the strict policy of racial segregation in the country. Two years after winning a Nobel Peach Prize, he became the first Black Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town.

After that he worked with Nelson Mandela as chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that was established to look into both past and present problems connected to apartheid. Even though he officially retired in 2010, he continued to work for the rights of people, such as the LGBTQ community in Cape Town. Desmond Tutu passed away on December 26, 2021.
10. U.S. Congressman, Co-Chair WWII Memorial Campaign, Honor Flight Ambassador

Answer: Bob Dole

Bob Dole served during WWII in Italy, where he sustained injuries that left him temporarily paralyzed. After his recovery, he completed his law degree, and began a long period of public service that included time in the Kansas House of Representatives, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate, where he was well known as a spokesman on agricultural policies. Nominated by his party to run for vice-president (1976) and president (1996), Dole was unsuccessful both times. He retired from politics in 1996.

It was then that Dole became involved as the chairman in a campaign to build a WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. The federal government provided approximately $16 million for the project, but a total of $197 million was raised. Dole often sat at the entrance to the memorial on Saturdays to greet Honor Flight visitors, veterans who were flown to the nation's capital to see the city and its memorials. He also continued important work helping to fight world hunger and working with the Families of Freedom Foundation, which provided scholarships to children who lost parents on 9/11. Bob Dole passed away on December 5, 2021.
