Great Quiz for US History Buffs. I didn't remember that Byrns was a Sr. and kept typing in Byrns. Maybe that could be an acceptable answer?

Thanks for letting me know. JetPunk doesn't give any type-ins for speakers. I'd say like 10% had type-ins.

Im not sure why you had trouble with Byrns since that was already a type-in I manually put it. I re-typed it anyway. hope that helps.
