Good info. I recognized some of the names on there, but one struck me as interesting - John Cromwell. Turns out that he is the father of James Cromwell, who is one of my favorite actors. James Cromwell is a character actor who has had some really great roles: Stretch Cunningham (All in the Family), the warden from The Green mile, and the sheep rancher from Babe. (An a host of other great characters).
Thanks that was quite interesting I had no clue john lee hooker or reagan were pipe smokers and as a huge hunter s thompson fan I was over joyed and surprised to see him didn't think he was theat famous....also I went 10 pages in and didn't see jrr toliken or norman rockwell but they may show up later I have work early and didn't have time to finish
I don't think holmes should be on the list being fictional though other wish gandalf bilbo and the rest of the lord of the rings cast should have made it to lol just my opinion no troll intended
I find it strange that those pictures don't show anybody with a meerschaum pipe.. I see mostly briars, with a few cobs.
Interesting, I see Mr. Charles Starrett of Athol, Massachusetts didn't stick with the family business.
He figured out that there was no future in precision instruments.
Riiiight, my toolbox, and Starrett's MSRP say otherwise.
Yeah. Without looking, I'd say I sent them north of 25k last year.
Don't worry, I just buy, somebody else pays.
My wife operates her shopping hobby on the very same basis.
Here is a list from the “Organization of Online Pipe Smokers (OoOPS).” I noticed a couple of women listed here.
Interesting list. Of note on first glance, Charles Puffy seems to be a case of a guy growing into his name.
As a blues and jazz guitarist myself I recognized most ot the musicians on the list, and of course my hero to the left here Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
They didn't mention Oom Paul, a head of South Africa in the 1890s. I wonder if he smoked the pipe named after him.
This list in incomplete, I should be on it! I'm famous... At least I am in my own little world.
They understand me here :s
Helluva list. Was proud to see Gen Chesty PULLER on here. I looked and looked to see Gen Mac and Pres Ford, and finally did at the end, however I didnt see Whitney!!
I didn't realize President Reagan was a pipe smoker. In regards to blues guitarits, did they have the great Stevie Ray Vaughn on there? How about Gatemouth Brown and Albert Collins? Stevie Ray and Albert did a blues record together and Albert was smoking his pipe (and his guitar!) on the cover.
The Hobbit looks like it's going to be THE pipe porn movie. A wizard, 12 dwarves and a hobbit!
Absolutely he did.
