2nd February 1915 (Tuesday)

BORN TODAY:

~ In Cape Town, South Africa – Aubrey Solomon Meir Eban, migrant, polymath, intelligence officer, propagandist, politician, polyglot, amabassador, author and TV narrator; of whom Henry Kissinger once said: “I have never encountered anyone who matched his command of the English language. Sentences poured forth in mellifluous constructions complicated enough to test the listener’s intelligence and simultaneously leave him transfixed by the speaker’s virtuosity.” [Wikipedia].
