Very enjoyable and difficult quiz. Some of the names don't seem to work - I put in both Washington and Ruth, and neither appeared.

Thanks for taking! Made changes so "Washington" works for George Washington (it already worked for Booker T.), and "Ruth" works for Babe Ruth.

Check out my Women Composers quiz, too!

Agree. I also did Washington and Ruth and they didn't work.

"King" doesn't work for "Martin Luther King" and "Presley" doesn't work for "Elvis Presley". Besides that, cool quiz! I'm surprised they didn't include Malcolm X.

In terms of influence I don't think you can ignore Billy Graham and Mark Zuckerberg.

Could you make just "Lewis" or just "Clark" work for Lewis and Clark? It feels strange having to guess two names for one slot
