    Lawyer/Writer/Politician:- Burke was the son of a Dublin attorney. In 1750, he entered the Middle Temple, London, but Burke soon abandoned law for literary work. In 1756 he published, anonymously, A Vindication of Natural Society . In 1765 he became the private secretary to Marquis of Rockingham, who at that time, but only for a year thereafter, was premier. Burke soon entered parliament, as a Whig, through a pocket borough, Wendover. During most all of his years as a parliamentarian, Burke was to sit in the opposition benches as a critic to the ruling Tories. These were times of great historical importance, marked by the unsuccessful coercion of the American colonies. The event, which was to unfold over a number of years, was, accompanied by corruption, extravagance, and reaction. Against this, Burke and his Whig friends could only raise a strong protest. "The best of Burke's writings and speeches belong to this period, and may be described as a defence of sound constitutional statesmanship against prevailing abuse and misgovernment." After the British colonies were lost, still yet in opposition, Burke turned his great talents in the support of the Irish cause

    Bacon, Francis
    Bacon was the lord chancellor of England; his removal in 1621 makes for a most interesting story. For legal philosophers, however, Francis Bacon is most well known for his delineation of the principles of the inductive scientific method , which constituted a breakthrough in the approach to science. Bacon was the originator of the expression, "Knowledge is power."
    Bagehot, Walter
    Mr. Bagehot was a mathematician; a moral philosopher; a political economist; a trained, though not a practising, lawyer; a banker; a shipowner; and, from 1860 till his too early death in 1877, the editor and manager of the Economist . Primarily, however, Bagehot was a reader and critic of books. I have a number of Bagehot's books including:

    Architects Artists Criticism of Individual Works General Biography Procedures ... Special Categories POLICY BACKGROUND Prior to the adoption of Dewey 19, the UIUC Library used a variety of special numbers for both individual and collective biographies, in addition to "B.", which was assigned for individual biography, and 921-928 for collective biography. Many of the previously used numbers for both individual and collective biographies have been discontinued in Dewey. In accordance with the policy that was established at the adoption of Dewey 19, "B." is no longer used in establishing new biography numbers. Under 920, only 920.001-920.09 and 920.7 are used for very general collective biographies. Most new (unestablished) individual biographies , as well as other, subject specific collective biographies, are currently classed by subject , adding either standard subdivision (for individual biography), or (for collective biography) as appropriate from Table 1. For purposes of establishing a consistent policy regarding the use of previously established biography numbers versus when to establish new biography numbers, CPAC voted in 1997 in favor of a

    The short biographies included in this page, were originally published in the chapter titled "People", of the "Alyson Almanac" "The Fact Book of the Lesbian and Gay Community", ( Alyson Publications ) 1994-1995 edition. Of the chapter's "concise biographies of some 275 colorful personalities from the past and present", 11 were directly or idirectly related to Greeks and have been copied here (without prior permission). A list similar to the one of the "Alyson Almanac" had been published in the three issues of the now-defunct greek language gay magazine "Gay" , some years ago. Here is another web page listing famous homosexuals from history. People The modern distinction between homosexual and heterosexual has not existed in most times and cultures. Many individuals listed here would not have considered themselves to be gay, or lesbian, or bisexual - for many, that terminology did not even exist. But in reclaiming a history that has generally been hidden, it's valuable to know how wide spread same-sex relationships have been in human history.
    The gay or bisexual orientation of most individuals listed here is well established. For a few, the evidence is circumstancial or open to question; these cases are indicated in the text.
