Answer: Bell

Alexander Graham Bell was a Scottish born inventor and scientist who migrated to the Americas. He was a teacher of deaf students in Boston, Massachusetts. Both Bell's mother and wife were deaf, which probably influenced his work with voice machines. Bell received a patent for the telephone in 1876.

Henry Ford was the founder of the Ford Motor Company. He was the first automobile maker to employ the use of the assembly line to bring low-cost automobiles to the average American. The Model T car was a no-frills alternative to the hand-crafted cars of the day. Ford summed up his feelings about customization with the statement that "A customer can have a car painted any color he wants as long as it's black."
3. Clarence (__________ View)

Answer: Birdseye

Clarence Birdseye created a process for fast-freezing food. He froze fish in order to preserve it for longer periods of time so that his food would not spoil. Birdseye patented his technique and sold the patent in 1929 for $22 million to the company that eventually became General Mills.

Francis Bacon (1st Viscount St.Albans) was a noted English philosopher, scientist and essayist who lived from 1561 to 1626.

Bacon shunned the medieval methods of his predecessors and based his scientific research on facts.

7. Robert (__________ Burner)

Answer: Bunsen

Robert Bunsen was a German chemist who, along with physicist Gustav Kirchhoff, discovered the elements cesium and rubidium. He was a professor of chemistry who shunned marriage in favor of his passion for teaching. He invented the zinc-carbon battery which bears his name.

He is also credited with participating in the invention of the Bunsen Burner which is still in use today. Bunsen let others manufacture the burner as he was not interested in profiting from his passion for science.
8. Florence (Ode to a __________)

Answer: Nightingale

One could say that Florence Nightingale invented modern nursing. During the Crimean War, she trained nurses to take care of the wounded soldiers. Florence realized that unsanitary conditions, poor diet, and lack of medical supplies were causing more deaths than the wounds themselves.

Her written reports brought awareness of the soldiers' plight to the attention of the public. Thanks to her diligence and reform, care for wounded soldiers greatly improved.
9. Levi (__________ Waltzes)

Answer: Strauss

Levi Strauss operated a dry goods store in California during the Gold Rush. Levi Strauss & Co. was the first business to manufacture blue jeans. Their riveted jeans were patented in 1873. The same logo that was placed on the leather patch of the jeans in 1886 is still being used today.

The 1906 San Francisco earthquake destroyed two factories and the company headquarters. Luckily, the disaster did not spell the demise for the company.
10. Heinrich (__________ Rental Car)

Answer: Hertz

Heinrich Hertz established that James Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism was correct. His experiments produced electromagnetic waves, which he measured for length and speed. He proved that heat and light are electromagnetic radiations. The frequency unit of cycles per second for these waves was named in his honor.
