ok, for English class i have to do a research paper on any "musician, artist, political figure, author, philosopher or pro athlete" can't be someone obscure and someone I admire. just sitting in class i came up with Lincoln, Hamilton, Grant and George Washington Carver. I was also thinking about Lee but I don't really admire him. Also T Roosevelt, Coolidge and or Reagan. I want to do someone not so well known, but someone good. any other suggestions or opinions would be awesome thanks

Do it on one of the great football coaches like Bear Bryant or Vince Lombardi. Could not go wrong with their type of professionalism, character building, etc. etc.

Just make sure you capitalize, punctuate and your sentence structure is correct.

Immanuel Kant, Soren Kierkegaard or Friedrich Nietzsche are interesting for philosophers.

While I'm not a fan of the Marx Brothers, I wouldn't do a reseach paper on any of them.
