This poster was in my grandfather's scrap-book that he kept from 1927 to 1931 It lists everyone who was important in America at the time. I see no women, person's of any other nationality, color, or even any great writers, thinkers of that time. Just Jefferson, Washington, Lincoln, Wilson and Roosevelt. There are only four contemporary figures on the poster. Lindbergh, Ruth, Dempsey, and Rosendahl.
I would think that most of the people on this poster would be known save for Rosendahl. This man was the commander of the Airship's in America, such as the USS. Los Angeles. However, the only airship shown here is the Graf Zeppelin which had made its debut in Germany in this year and would start international flights from Europe to the United States in 1928.
