Obscure Interesting Person: Charles Curtis
Vice President of the United States with Hoover, 1929-1933. Interestingly, the first acknowledged non-100% European to hold this office (he was 3/8 Native American, a factor of 6 greater than your blogger); therefore, the highest elected not-100% European official in the United States until 2009. Ben Kingsley is slated to play him in an upcoming independent film.
