Person-of-Mystery



Welcome to the weekend Person-of-Mystery Contest!  You've found the home of everyone's favorite weekend pastime, where a stylized photo of a somewhat famous person from history is provided for you to identify.

Today the image has been altered by one of my favorite little iPhone apps, Percolator, which was recently updated and improved.


So, who could I be?  That's the mystery!  Go ahead and take a guess and then go enjoy your day.  Check back tomorrow and I'll reveal the answer.  The first correct post will be declared the winner.
It's said that behind every great man is a great woman and this one was once described as worth dying for (although curiously enough, the man that said this about her married her daughter instead).  Your hint for today is: Aolele.

If you'd like to make sure that your guess is correct, enter her name into Google Images and the this photo will be found on the first page of image results.

...hmmm, silly me, I thought it would be harder without the cipher. Congratulations, Brian!

And happy new year everyone!

Brian said...

Thanks, Nate. Happy new year to you, too!

The Percolator pattern on the PoM image reminded me - did you get to do much stargazing on your recent camping trip?

Nate Maas said...

Brian, thanks. Yes, it was very nice. Perfect night for stargazing. I think I'll put it in a post for tomorrow.

Happy New Year. Thank you for your blog, you have taught me many things this past year. I may not always comment, but I am here every day. Well, I am going to look up Miss Stevenson now. Have a great day.
