My stupid brain has been wandering again.

I've just realised that Margaret Court will never have a tennis court named after her - The Margaret Court Court sounds weird.

Likewise there will never be a Tina Arena Arena.

Even the Billy Crystal Palace is odd. As are the Robbie Burns Bridges.

Is it just me?

At Harvard U. there is a residence hall (they call them 'houses' at Harvard) for every faculty member who helped found the College back in 1630, except for one. Thus, for example, there is a Dunster House etc., but there is no Hoar House.

The governor of Texas in 1890 was James "Big Jim" Hogg. He named his eldest daughter Ima. She was a serious scholar and studied music in New York. After the death of her parents, oil was discovered on the family land, and she became quite wealthy. She became a famous philanthropist, and spent a good deal of the family loot helping the people of Texas, as well as founding the Houston Symphony Orchestra, and funding educational and musical programs. The Ima Hogg Foundation remains a major philanthropic organization to this day.

@ossobuco,
There could be a John Irving Stone though. Two flies with one swat, you know... (or birds in american i guess).
