Great subject. One to add would be that John Wayne met Wyatt Earp in Hollywood in the 1920’s. Earp died in 1929.

The one I found most interesting (as an Air Force Historian) was Orville Wright and Neil Armstrong. Only 66 years between the First Flight and the Moon landing. I am ashamed I never put it together like that!
