Melvil Dewey, creator of the Dewey Decimal System of library classification. This advocate of spelling reform changed his name from Melville to Melvil to avoid unnecessary letters.
Once again for you librarians in the back, the creator of the Dewey Decimal System was totally hot and didn’t take crap from silent letters.

Too bad he was also a sexist.
Melvil Dewey is that bro in your high school gym class that makes fun of you for using the word diphthong. He then goes on to graduate from an Ivy League school thanks to a high school crew scholarship. You see him again in a bar seven years later and he has red eyes and a beer gut. He works in “finance” and says he thinks he knows you from somewhere. You roll your eyes and get back to your nachos. He is pretty but boring.
This misogynist hottie founded the very magazine from which I type right now.
