WHO IS THIS


This was not easy Dave.   I'd never heard of the man.  Took a while to figure out who he was.  The Bowtie helped.

Paul-Henri Spaak.

 

Paul-Henri Spaak, President of the Common Assembly of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) from 1952 to 1954 and President of the Intergovernmental Committee which, between July 1955 and June 1956, laid the foundations for the future European Economic Community (EEC) and European Atomic Energy Community (EAEC or Euratom

Looking at the collar and her dress top, looks like someone in the medical profession. Maybe a Nurse.  Too early for Florence Nightingale. The only other I know is Mother Teresa. I'll take a chance on Mother Teresa at a young age.

 Yeah, travel safely Dave, Take care. Look forward to seeing you back when you are able. I'm off myself September 5, back to my home in the Philippines for 2 months, but I have reasonable Internet there so will continue playing.

Now Sheba, that was to easy, so over to you;

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (/mændl/; 18 July 1918  5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionarypolitician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by tackling institutionalised racism and fostering racial reconciliation. Ideologically an African nationalist and socialist, he served as President of the African National Congress (ANC) party from 1991 to 1997.

Xhosa, Mandela was born in Mvezo to the Thembu royal family. He studied law at the University of Fort Hare and the University of the Wi****ersrand before working as a lawyer in Johannesburg. There he became involved in anti-colonial and African nationalist politics, joining the ANC in 1943 and co-founding its Youth League in 1944. After the National Party's white-only government established apartheida system of racial segregation that privileged whiteshe and the ANC committed themselves to its overthrow. Mandela was appointed President of the ANC's Transvaal branch, rising to prominence for his involvement in the 1952 Defiance Campaign and the 1955 Congress of the People. He was repeatedly arrested for seditious activities and was unsuccessfully prosecuted in the 1956 Treason Trial. Influenced by Marxism, he secretly joined the banned South African Communist Party(SACP). Although initially committed to non-violent protest, in association with the SACP he co-founded the militant Umkhonto we Sizwe in 1961 and led a sabotage campaign against the government. In 1962, he was arrested for conspiring to overthrow the state and sentenced to life imprisonment in the Rivonia Trial.

Mandela served 27 years in prison, initially on Robben Island, and later in Pollsmoor Prisonand Victor Verster Prison. Amid growing domestic and international pressure, and with fears of a racial civil war, President F. W. de Klerk released him in 1990. Mandela and de Klerk negotiated an end to apartheid and organised the 1994 multiracial general election in which Mandela led the ANC to victory and became President.

Certainly didn't expect that guess Jewel.  No, not Bette.  This lady was a bit younger than her, and spent most of her career as a Blonde.
