Date: Thu, 20 Oct 1994 08:58:38 EDT From: Larry Horn Subject: Re: names question On the decline of the Presidential naming practice: my guess would be that there was a huge fall-off between the set of babies who were middle-named "Roosevelt" into the 1940's and those who were middle-named "Truman" or any subsequent such name. But I imagine a graph would prove very uneven, with considerably more "Roosevelt"s (in Teddy's day) and perhaps "Wilson"s than, say "Taft"s or "Hoover"s. Just an uneducated guess, of course. Larry
