Andrew Jackson (15 Mar 1767 - 8 Jun 1845) - Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States, serving terms between 1829 and 1837. He ran his campaign on his celebrated war-hero status, having defeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans. As such, he was extremely popular with the common man and adroitly manipulated their support into office. His 1828 bid for presidency was often considered the “dirtiest” campaign in history, and his opponents referred to him as “Jackass” (which he promptly adopted as the mascot of his Democratic party). As an iron-willed, intimidating manager with a furious temper, people either loved him or hated him. Unafraid, he made politics personal and he abhorred losing. He was given the nickname “Old Hickory” as homage to his toughness.
Andrew Warhola (6 Aug 1928 – 22 Feb 1987) - Andy Warhol is an internationally celebrated American artist most known as the leading figure in the pop art movement of the late 1950’s. Some of his most notable works include “Eight Elvises” (1963) and “Campbell’s Soup I” (1968). He is one of the few artists whose works have commanded as much as $100 million in private auction. An eccentric man, Andy Warhol led a colorful life in the Manhattan art and social scenes of the 60’s and 70’s. He is also known for coining the phrase “fifteen minutes of fame.”
Saint Andrew (1st Century) - Saint Andrew was a fisherman in Galilee at the time of Jesus in the first century. He and his brother, Peter, were the first disciples called upon by Jesus. "Immediately they left their nets and followed him." (Matthew 4:20). St. Andrew is often referred to as the Strong Apostle – a man of courage, valor, and manliness. Even his name has noble meaning, coming from the Greek word "andreios", which is translated "brave". Whoever dares to follow Christ must be andreios (manly, courageous), an Andrew. As the first to follow Jesus, along with John the Baptist, many old manuscripts refer to him with the title of honor: "the first-called." St. Andrew went onto preach after the Resurrection and is traditionally believed to have been martyred on an “X” shaped cross, which is how he is often artistically rendered. The patron saint of Scotland, legend has it that St. Andrew’s bones were brought to modern-day St. Andrew, Scotland by a monk after being called upon by an angel to carry the relics “towards the ends of the earth” and erect a church to house the bones. Present day St. Andrew is home to the famous golf course as well as the third oldest university in the U.K. (St. Andrews University) after Oxford and Cambridge.
