This link is a story about famous people who were also engineers, but not famous for that. Pretty interesting. My favorite is the first.
I actually knew she was an engineer. I was surprised that Herbert Hoover made the list though-which is to my chagrin as he's the only President to come from Iowa. The one I was surprised to see not make the list is Jazz/Electropop legend Herbie Hancock who got his degree in Electrical Engineering at Grinnell College before getting picked up by Miles Davis and making some of the greatest recordings in history.
I love Rowan Atkinson too.
