Best-selling journalist Michael Farquhar, popular author of A Treasury of Great American Scandals, ransacked the archives to rescue 30 almost-famous Americans from the dust bin of obscurity. These colorful figures range from Mayflower Murderer John Billington (1624) to Dick Fosbury, father of the 'Flop' (1968).
