Person-of-Mystery

Welcome to Cipher Saturday!  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.


Additional clues may be found in the cipher below:

R sh ghn drca
ykaag ayyl tgs etf.
R sh ghn drca neaf...

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.

If you'd like to make sure that your guess is correct, enter his name into Wikipedia and this photo in its original form will be found on his page.

What? No comments? Once again I have no idea, but it looks like an artist.

Nate Maas said...

Yes, Judi. It looks a little quiet here this morning. People are probably still working on the cipher.

I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them...

Nate Maas said...

It looks as though Lynn has solved the cipher! Good work, Lynn! Now, who is this mystery man?

Brian said...

I wonder where DADD is today. I bet his guess would be right on the mark...

Judi said...

Of course it doesn't look anything like Theodor Geisel, but I will guess him. It's probably an artist named Sam.
Thanks for the cipher solve, Lynn.

Mark Twain or Samuel Langhorne Clemens. . . .one of the two.

Well done Dorion! Samuel Clemens, age 15. I knew I had seen that hat before ...

Nate Maas said...

Nice one, Dorion! This is Mark Twain (or Samuel Clemens) at age 15.

Good job Dorian. Nate this one fooled me...I kept going around with Dr. Suess relation. Though, I wonder if Brian, hinted that he knew the answer...since DADD often guesses Samuel Clemens...and Brian wrote 'mark' to hint Mark Twain. Or maybe, Iam reading to much into Brian's answer.

Well done Dorion, and to Lynn too for the cipher.
I'm sure Brian knew it, well done all.
Really excellent.

I knew I had seen the photo before. . I thought it was a young Chef Boyardee :-) then it came to me later.
