Winston Churchill
11/1874-1/1965 (Age at death: 90)

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (30 NOV 1874 - 24 JAN 1965) was a British politician known chiefly for his leadership during WW2, but he was also an artist, historian and writer.

As a child, he did poorly in school, for which he was punished. Time magazine included him as one of the 100 most influential leaders in history. (from the wiki, accessed 03-16-10)
