Mystery Person Contest


Let the Games Begin!

This contest is closed. PJM is the winner.

The man is Dr. George Washington Truett. He was one of the great revival preachers of the late 1800's and early 1900's. Sort of the Billy Graham of that time period.

He was Pastor of First Baptist of Dallas, Texas, but one of his favorite places to preach was at the tent revivals and encampments at Christoval, Texas.

  1. No idea but he looks like a judge who sentences you to hang and feels righteous about it.

  6. I think this fine looking gentleman is either Jansforth C. Howling, inventor of the decoy, or Ronald W. Smithdale, first man dicovered to have multiple families in different states.

  7. Some good guesses and some fun guesses but not one has gotten it yet.

    I have never won two in a row. This might be my chance to finally win back to back competitions.

  11. It would be cool if it was Barnes Wallis genius behind the Dam Busters Raid on the Ruhr dams. I did a term paper on the raid many years ago so I know it's not him. I haven't a blessed clue who the man is.

  16. I feel like I have met this man but my memory for names is, alas, just a memory.

    Seems you have us beat, PJM. If so, I say good for you. We didn't hear from some regulars.

    Enjoy your breakfast.

  17. No kidding, Al. No response from ENM (well, RTD did once).

    I looked through google pics of Christoval, Texas governors, other themes, but found none who looked like that.

    Mr. PJM, many congratulations! Enjoy your huge win (second in a row, woo!) and victorious breakfast.
