A photo of Nelson Mandela, taken in 1958. He was born July 18, 1918 in Mvezo in Cape Province, now a part of South Africa. Given the name Rolihlahla ("troublemaker"), some would say that he lived up to the name in the best way. Actively working against apartheid in his native South Africa, he was jailed in 1962 and remained in jail (under very poor conditions) until February, 1990. From 1994 through 1999, Mandela was President of South Africa and presided over the move from apartheid to a multi-cultural democracy in South Africa. While retiring in "active" politics in 1999, he continued to be active for causes internationally. Certainly, the "troublemaker" hasn't caused trouble for the poor and downtrodden.

Frank G. Ellis and his brother Robert Greene. Taken in South Africa circa 1886: Frank, standing, and his brother were in South Africa. Frank had been sent there by his father after some trouble with the law. His brother came a little later. I love this picture because Frank was such a 'poser'.
