My mind tinkers with the fact that it is one of the famous Arctic or Antarctic explorers.

Or possibly Thor Heyerdahl, a famous cruiser?

Henry, your new photo makes you look younger that your previous photo. Nice change.

No ,it is not Abbie .I don't think he ever had a beard .We were active in the Civil Rights movement together and I think if he did have a beard it would be a disguise .

The person I am asking people to guess would have been 72 years old now .

Another clue :

His name will likely be found in every history book written from 1969 to present .

None of the Chicago 7 fit the bill (as far as I can tell). Charles Manson is too old. None of the Apollo astronauts fit. Only one I can think of is Ed Kennedy as 1969 is when he drove two women off a bridge and saved only one.

Well, Neil Armstron is still alive. Robert and Ted Kennedy are gone but would both be older. Carl Sagan had darker hair and would have been around 76, so I don't know.
