Major Francis Charles Claypon Yeats-Brown [1886-1944] was an officer in the British Indian army. He was the author of the famous memoir "The Lives of a Bengal Lancer", for which he was awarded the 1930 James Tait Black Memorial Prize. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for acts of bravery while a member of the Royal Flying Corps in World War One and spent two years as a prisoner of war.

The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
