    Example: Carry On, Mr. Bowditch by Jean Lee Latham              Biography
     
         Nat Bowditch was a mathematical genius. He was one of many children from a family of sailors that was struggling to get by during the early years of our country. Nat's dream of attending Harvard was dashed when at the age of 12 he became an indentured servant. Nat's drive for knowledge led him to become a self-educated man. Even though he had very little formal education, he became a well respected and successful sea captain and businessman.
