I don't think 69. Chris Marlowe can be right. He was a contemporary of Shakespeare's, so if none of his poems were published before his death, how did Shakespeare write so many sonnets?

I also discovered that Eubie Blake is not correct -- he only lived to be 96 (or 99, depending on whom you believe). The correct answer is ELLIOTT CARTER.

That means all the others with one question mark are correct.

A couple of additions

28. During his relatively brief NFL career, this running back twice led the league in rushing attempts and became the first Giant to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Boonie has suggested RON JOHNSON (which fits into the common last names)

35. Often homeless and sometimes institutionalized, this American eccentric claimed to have authored the longest book ever written, and became the subject of a book and a subsequent film in which he was portrayed by Sir Ian Holm.

JOE GOULD?

85. In 1854, this British tobacconist introduced an eponymous brand of “English ovals” – and an empire was (eventually) born.

Duh - PHILLIP MORRIS

93. A member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, this British actor is best known in the United States for his Tony-winning role in which he taught us all how to do the Lambeth Walk.

I just realized that this is ROBERT LINDSAY. The show was the revival of Me and My Girl.

96. He was the protagonist of a linked series of more than 20 semi-autobiographical short stories written by arguably – as I called him in my last general knowledge game – the most influential American novelist of the 20th century.

I also just realized that this is probably NICK ADAMS - Hemingway's Nick Adams stories fits the description.

A couple of clarifications:

Appa is right about 8. I didn't read carefully enough, so if there was any doubt, Frank's use of present tense in writing the clue would be the clincher. Bennett died quite a while ago. Bill T. Jones is correct.

64. confused me with the wording. I think what Frank meant was that this person became the first African=American mayor of a certain California city, whereas I was reading it as the first African-American mayor of any major California city. The correct answer is Willie Brown, who became the first African American mayor of San Francisco.

Sorry, I can see how the wording might have been ambiguous. But you worked it out correctly.

Everything on here is right, or includes the right answer as one of its alternatives. Good job!

Let's see if I can put this into words:

From the group of three names, make four new names. For each set of four new names, one will be made by combining two first names, one by combining two last names, and the other two will be combinations of first and last names. Each of the four new names will match a word from the word list.

75. Clarence Page, 103. Elliott Carter, and 35. Joe Gould can make

(FL) Clarence Carter (Patches)
(LL) Carter Page (Trump)
(FL) Elliott Gould (Trapper)
(FF) Joe Elliott (Def)

38. Barney Miller, 53. Frank King, and 55. Henry Huggins make

(FF) Barney Frank (Dodd)
(LL) Miller Huggins (Murderers)
(FL) Henry Miller (Capricorn)
(FL) Frank Miller (Sin)

78. Will Parker, 47. Robert L Stevenson, and 18. George Smith make

(FL) Robert Parker (Spenser)
(LL) Parker Stevenson (Hardy)
(FF) George Will (This Week)
(FL) Will Smith (Ali)

Because of the duplication of some names and such, this becomes devilishly difficult. I have several partials, but I don't know if I want to list them, because it might just make things harder. The number of Post-its I have spread around right now is pretty amazing. But I got three complete sets, so I'm going ahead.

And once again, I smdh in awe of the Great Tangredi. Can't imagine how many Post-Its he has. :)

There is a less complicated way of describing this that will make it easier, but you've got the idea! Good work!

Since the title phrase references The Borg, I'd assume the middle name is being "assimilated" into the other two names to make the new foursome. Or something like that....

Let's see if I can put this into words:

From the group of three names, make four new names. For each set of four new names, one will be made by combining two first names, one by combining two last names, and the other two will be combinations of first and last names. Each of the four new names will match a word from the word list.

75. Clarence Page, 103. Elliott Carter, and 35. Joe Gould can make

(FL) Clarence Carter (Patches)
(LL) Carter Page (Trump)
(FL) Elliott Gould (Trapper)
(FF) Joe Elliott (Def)

38. Barney Miller, 53. Frank King, and 55. Henry Huggins make

(FF) Barney Frank (Dodd)
(LL) Miller Huggins (Murderers)
(FL) Henry Miller (Capricorn)
(FL) Frank Miller (Sin)

78. Will Parker, 47. Robert L Stevenson, and 18. George Smith make

(FL) Robert Parker (Spenser)
(LL) Parker Stevenson (Hardy)
(FF) George Will (This Week)
(FL) Will Smith (Ali)

Because of the duplication of some names and such, this becomes devilishly difficult. I have several partials, but I don't know if I want to list them, because it might just make things harder. The number of Post-its I have spread around right now is pretty amazing. But I got three complete sets, so I'm going ahead.

And once again, I smdh in awe of the Great Tangredi. Can't imagine how many Post-Its he has. :)


Professor Tangredi - he is so clever. I bow. I just bow.

This WILL be fun!!

EDITED TO ADD: You, too, Mr K

83. He became the most celebrated of the three radicals who founded the Black Guerrilla Family in 1970.

GEORGE JACKSON??


Turns out

86. In the 1920s, he became one of the first evangelists to broadcast over the radio and founded an institution to combat what he saw as the dangerous secularization of American higher education.

is BOB JONES

Mr. K, your talent in deciphering Tangredis is astounding!

This one doesn't fit the pattern of the other two: the last name that's used twice ("assimilated" as LB calls it) should belong to the same person as the first name that's used twice. An alternative could look like this:

3. Glenn Miller, 105. John Ford, and 55. Henry Huggins make

There is now one definite answer that is wrong. Everything else is either right or includes the right answer as an alternate.

Now that you've figured out the mechanics, it might be easier for you to think of the matches this way: In every threesome, there is one name that is split in two. The first name gets inserted into the middle of one of the other names, the last name gets inserted into the middle of the other. (Middle names can be discarded.)

There is now one definite answer that is wrong. Everything else is either right or includes the right answer as an alternate.

Now that you've figured out the mechanics, it might be easier for you to think of the matches this way: In every threesome, there is one name that is split in two. The first name gets inserted into the middle of one of the other names, the last name gets inserted into the middle of the other. (Middle names can be discarded.)




19. is THOMAS LAWRENCE, not Millais

So the rest of the answers are right…

Identify the 105 people in the clues below. Match them into 35 groups of three according to a Tangredi, or principle you must discover for yourself. Then, match each threesome with FOUR of the Associated Words.

No name will be used twice.

There are some possible alternate pairs, but if you can make an alternate threesome, I’ll be astounded. This may be tough, but you'll work it out.

76. In addition to building the first American steam locomotive and operating the first U.S. ferry service, this inventor also played a major role in establishing U.S. patent law.
I thought this is PETER COOPER, who built The Tom Thumb, but I'm not sure about the ferry service and the patent law aspects of the clue. I also don't think Frank would fail to mention his connection to Jell-O.

That's what I thought... then, i realized THIS

might be Andrew Bradley. Which, matched with Cooper goes with Sniper

EDITED: Although we have James Fennimore Cooper - we don't need this to be Peter Cooper.
