  6. D. W. Griffith (1987/01/18/0004444) The former, the D. W. Griffith of the avant-garde, presents spectacular epics or ”operas,” the latter, an autobiographical monologist, sits at a card table and tells stories from his life.

  8. Scott Joplin (1987/01/20/0005135) High points of the show included the obscure Cole Porter bonbons, ”Two Little Babes In the Wood” and ”Nobody’s Chasing Me,” Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle’s ”I’m Just Wild About Harry” (performed both as a waltz and as a one-step to show how a simple time change can alter a song’s character), and piano compositions by Ernesto Nazareth, ”the Scott Joplin of Brazil,” that blended ragtime and tango.

  10. Duncan Grant (1987/01/21/0005631) When a Dufy of 1905 is hung next to a Duncan Grant of around 1916, we see at once how close was the best of Bloomsbury painting to certain rich, juicy procedures on the other side of the English Channel.

  15. +E. L. Doctorow (1987/01/31/0008693) Just as the Czechoslovak composer incorporated such themes into his ”New World” Symphony, so Mr. Skvorecky, a Czechoslovak author, brings to this ”first attempt at writing a historical and biographical novel” echoes of American writers of the period from Bret Harte to William Dean Howells, with a nod to the E. L. Doctorow of ”Ragtime.”+
  16. Emerson Ellick Sterns (1987/01/31/0008740) $10,000 Payment Was Planned Mrs. Whitehead was to have received $10,000 from the Sterns for bearing a baby after being artificially inseminated with Mr. Stern’s sperm.

  19. +Abraham Lincoln (1987/02/08/0011420) AT the Gettysburg cemetery, the Abraham Lincoln of Gore Vidal’s novel barely gets through his first sentence - about the events in America ”four score and seven years ago” - when the young Presidential secretary, John Hay, cynically observes that such rhetoric ”will please the radicals.”+
  20. The Scarlet Pimpernel (1987/02/08/0011467) The son of a banker, Salomon became the Scarlet Pimpernel of photojournalism by virtue of the adroitness with which he could conceal his camera when necessary.

  24. Jan Brueghel the Elder (1987/02/13/0012870) Subjects like ”Flora” and ”The Four Senses” cause him to come on like the Velvet Brueghel of his set, putting his trust in multiplicity of subject matter and a high degree of finish.
  25. Leonardo da Vinci (1987/02/18/0014363) Contending that Dr. Osborne had set himself up as judge, police expert and hand surgeon, Mr. Smirti called him the Leonardo da Vinci of the Bronx.

  28. Robert Moses (1987/02/25/0016401) Why do so many prominent chefs and restaurateurs in New York and beyond describe him as the best-connected and most influential man in their business, in terms of influence sort of a Robert Moses of culinary politics?
  29. Greta Garbo (1987/02/28/0017372) It was enough to make people wonder if McReynolds would adjust to the customary passion of the Mets or become the Greta Garbo of New York baseball, wanting to be alone in a city and business where it was not easy to be alone.
  30. Mr. T (1987/03/01/0017607) President Reagan is said to be a great fan of the ”McLaughlin Group” and has called Mr. McLaughlin ”the Mr. T of TV journalism.”

  34. +Leonard Bernstein (1987/03/03/0018205) It began with Debussy-like textures, and integrated bits of Caribbean pop music in a style that recalled the Leonard Bernstein of ”West Side Story.”+
  35. Caligula (1987/03/08/0019639) He’s less well inclined toward such baseball personalities as Bill Veeck, who owned the Chicago White Sox during Mr. Kuhn’s tenure and whom the commissioner considered something of a fraud (what really went on between the two men was a culture clash, the encounter of a banker and a street peddler); George Steinbrenner, the owner of the New York Yankees, whose antics unnerved Mr. Kuhn just as much as one would expect; August Busch Jr., the owner of the St. Louis Cardinals, whose decisions seemed dictated less by what was good for baseball than by how many cases of Budweiser it might sell; and various other owners - especially Charles O. Finley, the Caligula of the Oakland A’s -whose codes of style and behavior offended Mr. Kuhn’s smothering sense of decorum.
  36. Paul Revere (1987/03/13/0021181) Mr. Blake, a retired businessman, became the Paul Revere of Summit trash.
  37. +Nora Kaye (1987/03/15/0021484) While it is inaccurate to consider her as only a Tudor dancer, the Nora Kaye of every dance history book is epitomized by the image on this page - in her role as Hagar, the frightened spinster of ”Pillar of Fire.”+
  38. Claude Monet (1987/03/20/0022971) However, you can certainly get into the Andre Mayer galleries at the Met, where there is a Claude Monet of 1873 called ”Apple Trees in Bloom” that will be the best possible substitute.
  39. Ronald Reagan (1987/03/20/0023137) But after about a half-dozen questions, he seemed to hit his stride, answering at some length and with considerably more composure, even though he never oozed self-confidence like the Ronald Reagan of old.
  40. Alan Orange (1987/03/22/0023650) Adelphi, in beating the Orange for the first time since 1977, then got seven consecutive goals, three by Reh.
  41. George Bush (1987/03/23/0024033) The error amused Mr. Mosbacher, who is not only chairman of the Mosbacher Energy Company but also financial adviser to the George Bush for President Committee and certainly worthy of the ”A” list.
  42. Vivienne Westwood (1987/03/24/0024133) AT one of the first and most energetic fashion shows here last week, a laugh-a-minute presentation at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts by the Vivienne Westwood of Paris, Jean-Remy Daumas, there were the town’s most frivolous fashion trappings: Mohican fur headpieces and doggy-ear hoods, heart-shaped backpacks, pillowcases reading Oui!
  43. Michelangelo (1987/03/24/0024161) Yet you have the gall to take up precious space between a mansard roof and a wood-and-leather lobby under the illusion that you can become a Michelangelo of the art form known as living?
  44. Albert Einstein (1987/03/27/0024878) If you are a fan of brains, you will no doubt get your fill with this enormous portion, which must come from the Einstein of the calf world.
  45. Frank Loesser (1987/03/29/0025359) It originated in a much different form in Paris, and its principal authors, Claude-Michel Schonberg (music) and Alain Boublil (book) are Frenchmen, influenced as much by Bizet as by Kurt Weill, the Frank Loesser of ”The Most Happy Fella,” and, in their use of pop-opera conventions, Mr. Lloyd Webber.
  46. Clemente Susini (1987/03/29/0025364) In her sculptures of the last eight or 10 years she has, in effect, been both the Clemente Susini of our day and -what is more difficult - the inventor of the anatomies that she puts together with such a dexterous hand.
  47. Alan Orange (1987/03/30/0025820) The coaches in the Northeast who have watched the Orange for several years use words like ”brilliant” and ”genius” when describing his work.

  53. Johnny Appleseed (1987/04/12/0029177) I saw myself as the Johnny Appleseed of linguistics, persuading hotel owners to put dictionaries in rooms everywhere, enabling weary travelers to look up the meanings and spellings of words used in late-night X-rated movies.
  54. George Steinbrenner (1987/04/12/0029256) They are the George Steinbrenner of marathons because they go out and buy as many names as they can, regardless of what the athlete’s current condition is.
  55. Ira Gershwin (1987/04/16/0030666) Miss Cook’s unflagging musicianship honors composers as various as Gershwin, Berlin and Sondheim, and her affection for lyricists, from the Ira Gershwin of ”A Foggy Day” to the Sheldon Harnick of ”Dear Friend,” is nearly as intense.
  56. Sheldon Harnick (1987/04/16/0030666) Miss Cook’s unflagging musicianship honors composers as various as Gershwin, Berlin and Sondheim, and her affection for lyricists, from the Ira Gershwin of ”A Foggy Day” to the Sheldon Harnick of ”Dear Friend,” is nearly as intense.

  59. Duke Ellington (1987/04/22/0032772) He has attributed some of his stylistic inspiration to Bud Powell and McCoy Tyner, but his creation of salsa concerto-style compositions led to his being regarded by some as the Duke Ellington of salsa.

  65. Oliver North (1987/05/03/0036472) In the Luce tradition, Mr. Malkin can coin a phrase: the economist Arthur Laffer is ”the Oliver North of Reaganomics”; Milton Friedman is ”one of those brilliant one-idea cranks”; and President Reagan’s alma mater is the ”providentially named Eureka College.”
  66. Napoleon (1987/05/03/0036760) This steady stream of income from the exploitation of a name synonymous with high fashion has earned him a sobriquet, the Napoleon of licensors.

  86. Walter Winchell (1987/05/22/0042798) A recent historian has described Bald as ”the Boswell of the Lost Generation,” but Root disagrees: ”In my opinion ’the Walter Winchell of the Lost Generation’ would have been more like it.”
  87. Jackie Robinson (1987/05/22/0042958) He added, ”In short, he is the Jackie Robinson of the corporate world.”

  138. James Naismith (1988/08/08/0168974) That’s because the James Naismith of Hoover-ball was the White House physician, Vice Admiral Joel T. Boone, who devised the game as a way to entice Hoover, who was notoriously lackadaisical about his health, into exercising.

  155. H. G. Wells (1988/08/29/0175178) In ”Water From the Wells of Home,” written and sung with John Carter Cash, the lyrics get teary about the old days while the music aims for middle-of-the-road rock.

  163. Barbara Walters (1988/09/11/0178347) The tenor of this club is to denigrate, to humiliate,” explains Freda Reeser, a member who calls herself ”the Barbara Walters of the Hawaiian Jewish community” because she interviews visiting celebrities for a local magazine.
  164. Sergei Bubka (1988/09/11/0178481) The world record holder in the pole vault jump, the Sergei Bubka of the Soviet Union, is the only man to have jumped higher than the ”wall” of 6 meters.
  165. Wayne Gretzky (1988/09/11/0178517) No such distinction is made for women, and so Jeannie Longo of France, the Wayne Gretzky of women’s cycling, will compete in the Games, as a heavy favorite.
  166. Henny Youngman (1988/09/12/0178948) Mr. Dukakis is reveling in his new role; aside from the daily accusations and the angry speeches, he’s becoming a Henny Youngman of political snipers.

  168. Chen (1988/09/19/0180823) Debra Holloway of Oxen Hill, Md., fell victim to Yi-an Chen of Taiwan, whose height and long legs enabled her to land a solid ax kick to Holloway’s head in the second round.
  169. George H. W. Bush (1988/09/23/0181814) What makes the George Bush of 1988 more moderate than Mr. Reagan, particularly in view of the litany of ”social issues,” from prayer in the schools to guns in the home, that he recited in his acceptance speech?
  170. John F. Kennedy (1988/09/25/0182307) All told, the four years since he quit his corporate directorships on Bay Street to succeed Mr. Trudeau as Liberal leader have been shocking ones for Mr. Turner, whose supporters once hailed him as the John F. Kennedy of Canadian politics.

  172. Steve Jobs (1988/09/28/0183345) That Acer has come this far is something of a testament to the drive and unconventional approach of the 43-year-old Mr. Shih, who has become the Steve Jobs of Taiwan.
  173. Elvis Presley (1988/09/30/0183777) The film’s repeated suggestions that the Elvis of 1972 ought to return to his 50’s roots are certainly sound, but they become tiresome when delivered by the self-righteous Johnny.
  174. Cees Veerman (1988/09/30/0183964) 10 ranked player in the world, a sleepy-eyed player with a whispy beard, nicknamed the Cat for the way he covers the court with deceptively quick, silent strides.
  175. Dian Fossey (1988/10/02/0184224) Small wonder, then, that the Dian Fossey of ”Gorillas in the Mist” becomes, as played captivatingly by Sigourney Weaver, a tough, dedicated and extraordinarily single-minded naturalist with nothing terribly unusual to her makeup.
  176. Nabob (1988/10/02/0184266) Willie Chan, the Nabob of Hong Kong Cinema
  177. Fane (1988/10/02/0184506) Here, in the park of the great mansion of the dukes of Buckingham and Chandos - now a school - is almost everything a folly fancier could desire: temples, pavilions, arches, bridges, obelisks, towers, columns, a hermitage, a cascade, a Dido’s Cave and a Fane of Pastoral Poetry.
  178. P. T. Barnum (1988/10/05/0185168) That was never more evident than at the opening ceremonies of our Olympics, staged by the longtime Hollywood producer David Wolper, the P. T. Barnum of patriotism.
  179. Muhammad Ali (1988/10/09/0186323) Until recently, the muscular, middleweight Ribbs, whom the racing press once labeled the Muhammad Ali of auto racing, might have reacted to such an incident by punching Pruett out in the pits afterward.
  180. Black Panther (1988/10/09/0186368) The trail takes him into the lairs of a law-and-order bigot running for Congress, an introspective mob boss named Sweet Lou, a snooty sexpot, an unhappy hooker called Mean Sheila and a Black Panther of the old school who wants to set fire to the world, not to a barbecue pit a la Bobby Seale.
  181. Andrew Lloyd Webber (1988/10/10/0186766) But more stems from Mr. Jobs’s reputation as the Andrew Lloyd Webber of product introductions, a master of stage flair and special effects.
  182. Marvin Mitchelson (1988/10/14/0187685) It was the Marvin Mitchelson of old, exhibiting the same high-profile, confrontational approach he’d perfected over the years for Joan Collins, Soraya Khashoggi and Bianca Jagger.
  183. Honoré de Balzac (1988/10/14/0187729) Critics sometimes call Naguib Mahfouz the Balzac of Egypt because of the way his works express the pulsating energy of city life and because of their psychologically nuanced characters and broad social concern.
  184. Henny Youngman (1988/10/14/0187903) The new revised Democratic Presidential candidate is exuding dazzling one-liners - the Henny Youngman of American politics.
  185. T. S. Eliot (1988/10/16/0188266) What’s revealed in this book is an Eliot for many years trapped in something very bad: month after month of living day to day, confronting the task of the moment with the energies of the moment, willing off psychic disaster.
  186. Bob Hope (1988/10/16/0188478) Comedy is Mr. Yoshida’s specialty (”I was once called ’the Bob Hope of Bunraku’ ”), and he has adapted a lot from Chaplin and Keaton.
  187. Harold Edmund Box (1988/10/17/0188717) Lucero Barry took on Picasso’s ”Demoiselles d’Avignon” in a dance for five women called ”In a Box of Paint,” a work inspired by the painting and set to Gregorian chants and a song by Laurie Anderson.

  193. Andy Warhol (1988/10/23/0190647) He is the Andy Warhol of opera production, screaming at us to look at sleazy banality with tolerant eyes and recognize it as a new profundity.
  194. Mathias Grünewald (1988/10/24/0191047) That remark is very much to the point, in that Johns’s recent paintings inhabit a cross-referential world in which the Matthias Grunewald of the Isenheim altarpiece in Colmar is constantly being quoted (though not always in ways that the casual visitor will decipher).
  195. +Plan B (1988/10/27/0192120) His sister, trying to cheer him up, sent him a card that read, ”God has a Plan B for you.”+
  196. George Russell Shaw (1988/10/30/0192811) Speaking by telephone from London, Mr. Holroyd said he trusts that the first volume, ”The Search for Love,” will show readers ”a new Shaw, a Shaw for our time,” whose themes remain topical.

  198. William Shakespeare (1988/11/06/0195168) Most English teachers are familiar with the Shakespeare of legend and tradition: the Stratford boy who may have poached deer and rabbit, the ambitious playwright vilified by a rival as an ”upstart Crow,” the man who willed, curiously, his ”second-best bed” to his wife.
  199. Lorin Maazel (1988/11/06/0195310) As we have learned through his appearances at the New York City Opera, Mr. Siciliani is something like the Lorin Maazel of Italian opera conductors.

  211. Joseph Stalin (1988/12/06/0204254) As a result, he is regarded as ”the Stalin of Patchogue, the Idi Amin of Long Island,” which, along with many other aspects of the play, is a considerable overstatement.
  212. Idi Amin (1988/12/06/0204254) As a result, he is regarded as ”the Stalin of Patchogue, the Idi Amin of Long Island,” which, along with many other aspects of the play, is a considerable overstatement.

  214. Michael Boskin (1988/12/07/0204598) The Michael Boskin of the Bush campaign is a bit different from the Michael Boskin of academia.
  215. Richard Nixon (1988/12/12/0205939) The Nixon of the late 60’s was indeed different from the Nixon of previous campaigns.
  216. Gilbert du Motier (1988/12/12/0206044) The next time troubles threaten in the Philippines or Pakistan and the urge to help is strong, you can suit up and say ”Lafayette, we are here” in Manila or Islamabad and stand a chance of being welcome, says Representative Stephen Solarz, Democrat of New York, At a lunch in Mr. Solarz’ honor last year, President Corazon Aquino thanked him for his work on the House Foreign Affairs Committee on behalf of the ”Filipino struggle for freedom” and addressed him as ”the Lafayette of the Philippine revolution.”
  217. Gilbert du Motier (1988/12/12/0206044) The next time troubles threaten in the Philippines or Pakistan and the urge to help is strong, you can suit up and say ”Lafayette, we are here” in Manila or Islamabad and stand a chance of being welcome, says Representative Stephen Solarz, Democrat of New York, At a lunch in Mr. Solarz’ honor last year, President Corazon Aquino thanked him for his work on the House Foreign Affairs Committee on behalf of the ”Filipino struggle for freedom” and addressed him as ”the Lafayette of the Philippine revolution.”

1989

  1. Dalai Lama (1989/01/03/0211257) Some Tibetans, already critical of the Dalai Lama for proposing talks this month with Beijing, are now suggesting that he consider leaving India.
  2. Samuel Johnson (1989/01/08/0212236) That gets me back to legitimacy,” Mr. Coogan explained, but his eyes lighted up when he added, ”I can be the Samuel Johnson of comic books: They are really just another form of literature.”
  3. Dash (1989/01/08/0212481) For many of us who knew, admired, and were influenced by Bruce Goff, it is gratifying to see him now receiving the serious attention he has so long deserved [ ”Tomorrowland, With a Dash of Fantasyland,” Dec. 4 ] .
  4. Attila (1989/01/11/0213159) The reporters were reporting Bush nicenesses that would have been unthinkable a few weeks ago when this very same George Bush was the Attila of the campaign trail.
  5. George H. W. Bush (1989/01/11/0213159) It’s hard to believe this is the George Bush of the autumnal sound bites and photo ops who captured the American voter by the ruthless way he put the boot into anybody who got in his way.
  6. Rembrandt (1989/01/15/0214267) Citing these difficulties, Ingrid L. Thalheimer, president of the Rembrandt of Travel Service in Manhattan, said she advised clients to buy a ticket on the spot.
  7. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1989/01/15/0214304) Its opening theme sounds like the Tchaikovsky of ”Eugene Onegin,” though it was composed considerably before the Russian’s opera.
  8. Howard Hughes (1989/01/15/0214315) Ray McAnally is a bluff, robust fellow, most certainly not to be regarded as the Howard Hughes of Irish theaterland.
  9. Lillian Hellman (1989/01/15/0214451) Having read every word of Isabelle’s book, I can only surmise either that she wishes to be immortalized as the Lillian Hellman of the art world or that the men with whom I spent every waking hour had, previous to our first meeting, collectively repented, reformed and miraculously transformed their characters without the benefit of any self-help programs.
  10. Clint Eastwood (1989/01/16/0214485) Mr. O’Keefe, a playwright and actor whose surreal family drama ”All Night Long” was produced in 1984 in New York at Second Stage, might be described as the Clint Eastwood of performance artists.
  11. Carl-Uwe Steeb (1989/01/21/0215915) 1 ranking with a 6-2, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3 second-round victory over the Carl-Uwe Steeb of West Germany.

  15. Copy (1989/01/27/0217972) Keeps a Copy of the Check
  16. Ludwig van Beethoven (1989/01/28/0218204) The Beethoven interpretation did not allow for great flexibility in tempo shifts or the kind of broadening of a melodic line that characterized the Beethoven of some older Middle European conductors.
  17. Ronald Reagan (1989/01/29/0218458) In all this, Mayor Bradley, a former police officer, has emerged as the Ronald Reagan of urban politics, the ”Teflon” Mayor.
  18. Mark Twain (1989/01/31/0218970) Venice has long been the Mark Twain of cities.
  19. Buck Rogers (1989/02/01/0219360) The obvious conclusion is that unless we’re careful, the Buck Rogers of the 1990’s is going to be living in Seoul, Korea, instead of Chattanooga or Chicago,” said Lamar Alexander, president of the University of Tennessee and a former governor of Tennessee.
  20. Billie Jean King (1989/02/01/0219411) Alicia McConnell used to dream of being the Billie Jean King of women’s squash and turning her sport into a multimillion-dollar enterprise.
  21. Buckminster Fuller (1989/02/05/0220657) Citi will be the world’s first truly global financial institution, says Mr. Reed, whose intense focus on the future seems to be turning him into the Buckminster Fuller of banking.
  22. Gustav Mahler (1989/02/05/0220823) Now it is Mr. Penderecki who is seen as having regressed into neo-Romantic recycling, Mr. Schnittke is prized as a, if not the, leading Soviet composer, and Shostakovich is the Mahler of the 80’s.
  23. Antonio Stradivari (1989/02/10/0221928) Not only do we believe in that smooth and silent progress, but we recognize the canoe itself as one built by Remington’s friend, J. Henry Rushton, still spoken of as the Stradivarius of canoe builders.
  24. Lincoln (1989/02/12/0222430) When Edwin Stanton murmured, ”Now he belongs to the ages” at Lincoln’s deathbed, he could hardly have anticipated how determinedly each age would have a Lincoln of its own.
  25. Abraham Lincoln (1989/02/12/0222430) For Americans still struggling with the transformation of a rural, small-town society into an industrial and urban one, the Lincoln of these books embodied, with the jauntiness of an Aaron Copland score, the pioneer virtues of hard work and neighborliness while underscoring Depression-era lessons about national unity in the face of adversity.
  26. PC (1989/02/12/0222630) Most work station CAD programs are based on the Unix operating systems, and users prefer to switch to a PC for such tasks as word processing.
  27. Steven O. Shattuck (1989/02/14/0223171) Mr. Cukierman, who has owned the Shattuck for eight years, says his experience with athletic teams that stay at the Shattuck while competing at the University of California leads him to fear that the condoms will be put to a use for which they were not intended.
  28. Angel Dark (1989/02/17/0223997) Ib Andersen, in that title role, was magnificently obsessed and Merrill Ashley was an equally impressive and insistent Eurydice, with Leonid Kozlov a Dark Angel of true menace.

  32. Oliver North (1989/02/26/0226688) Groves was an amazing superpatriot, Mr. Rintels says, adding, ”He was the Oliver North of his generation.”
  33. Groucho Marx (1989/02/26/0226891) And so we see his son, Reginald Jones, once again in pursuit of an absolute (this time justice), enlist in the Civil War in Spain and then again in the Second World War, where his experiences repeat, with little profit, those of his father; when demobilized, he is caught up in the Welsh nationalist cause, the Groucho Marx of wars, and while he is at it he discovers and rescues Excalibur from the Hermitage in Russia.
  34. Mike Tyson (1989/02/27/0226986) Joe Frazier was the Tyson of his time, but George Foreman wrecked him.
  35. Mike Tyson (1989/02/27/0226993) And though his performance may not have been textbook-perfect - ”It wasn’t the Mike Tyson of vintage,” the champion said afterward -Tyson didn’t feel any lack of conviction about his potency.
  36. Jackie Robinson (1989/03/01/0227574) Sidney Poitier was the Jackie Robinson of American film,” said Rochelle Slovin, the director of the museum, which opened in September in Astoria, Queens, after seven years of planning.
  37. +Thomas Mann (1989/03/05/0228981) There is a bit of Alfred Hitchcock to Ms. Ingalls, but there is also a profundity that lets her be compared to Cortazar or Jorge Luis Borges or the Thomas Mann of ”Mario and the Magician.”+
  38. Tarzan (1989/03/05/0228996) Thoreau is the Tarzan of nature writing.
  39. Camille Pissarro (1989/03/05/0229056) Admittedly, there is a Pissarro among the forthcoming masters, but he is Claude, grandson to Camille, and if the student-teacher relationship of the two was personal, as the scanty biographical material suggests, the younger man must now be in his 90’s.
  40. John Nicolò Martin (1989/03/09/0230092) Chrysler and Renault announced Feb. 2 that they would build the JJ for sale by each auto maker on its respective continent.

  42. Merce Cunningham (1989/03/16/0231915) Those with long memories will recall similar experiments by the Merce Cunningham of 25 years ago.
  43. Ludwig van Beethoven (1989/03/16/0231917) And Stockhausen’s intense extremism audibly echoes the Beethoven of the ”Hammerklavier,” especially in his Piano Piece No.
  44. Bernard King (1989/03/16/0231972) The lift and explosiveness have been diminished by knee surgery and age but Bernard King in the last month has been a reasonable facsimile of the Bernard King of the past.
  45. James Dean (1989/03/17/0232294) Let’s Get Lost,” the second feature by the successful fashion photographer Bruce Weber, focuses on the life and times of Chet Baker, the jazz trumpeter and heroin addict who has been called the James Dean of jazz.
  46. Dalai Lama (1989/03/22/0233796) Recent violence in Tibet surrounding the 30th anniversary of an uprising against the Chinese in March 1959 and China’s subsequent imposition of martial law on the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, concerns the Dalai Lama for several reasons, he said.
  47. P. T. Barnum (1989/03/24/0234364) He called Mr. Anthony ”the P. T. Barnum of sleaze” and said the accusations were a ”pre-emptive strike” in advance of the ethics committee’s report on Mr. Wright.
  48. Calvin Hill (1989/03/26/0235003) Yet when the beer companies sponsor the national tournament, there is often some sanctimonious inflection about the wonderful ”scholar-athletes” making this nation proud: A Bill Bradley of Princeton on every squad, just as every football team has a Calvin Hill of Yale every fall.

  107. Hunter S. Thompson (1989/06/11/0257800) The most Anglicized exercise may be IN TROUBLE AGAIN: A Journey Between the Orinoco and the Amazon (272 pp., Atlantic, $17.95), Redmond O’Hanlon’s search for human or animal horrors between the Amazon and the Orinoco rivers, which serves to cement the Oxford-educated naturalist’s reputation as the Hunter S.

  113. Donald Trump (1989/06/25/0261170) He would just be a ”gimmick” that would highlight the Donald Trump of private jets and 118-room vacation homes, an image that would not lure the business travelers who make up 80 percent of shuttle riders, Mr. Sloves said.

  201. Clint Eastwood (1990/11/18/0401924) Emotionally speaking, Mr. Welliver is a Clint Eastwood of landscapists, and it is not unlikely that when he gets a museum retrospective, his clarity and competence will make him, too, a cult figure.
  202. Errol Flynn (1990/11/18/0402002) Nevertheless, Mr. Reagan was signed up and became ”the Errol Flynn of the B pictures,” eventually making a couple of A films as well: “Knute Rockne – All American,” in which he played the dying Gipper, and “Kings Row,” in which he played a young man who loses his legs.
  203. Copy (1990/11/18/0402023) Bush Gives Czechs a Copy of Liberty Bell
  204. John Donne (1990/11/18/0402026) She is, as she says, a poet of “serious play” – extravagant, large-spirited, querulous – a John Donne of the postwar American suburbs who combines a breezy colloquial formalism with an underlying violence of feeling.
  205. Ramesh Chandra Rout (1990/11/18/0402063) Hurricanes in the Hunt After a Rout of B.C.
  206. Magnet (1990/11/20/0402456) Chicopee Journal; Once Again, an Air Base Is a Magnet for Protest

  209. +Tory Burch (1990/11/25/0403755) In his book “Fors Clavigera,” he wrote, “I will tell you plainly, I am, and my father was before me, a Tory of the old school.”+
  210. Jesse Jackson (1990/11/25/0403827) On the teacher’s desk sits a ceramic elephant, a Jesse Jackson for President button fastened to it with a rubber band.
  211. Nelson Riddle (1990/11/26/0404159) Buried in Blue, which ends the second act, is one of several numbers in the show in which the band is joined by strings, arranged and conducted by Marc Shaiman, the gifted young arranger and composer who is becoming the Nelson Riddle of his generation.
  212. Floyd Mayweather (1990/11/28/0404529) Needed the Money for Drugs
  213. Thomas Edison (1990/11/29/0404840) The man who bills himself as the Thomas Edison of Japan has been in New York all week, presiding over something called the World Genius Convention.
  214. Thomas Edison (1990/11/29/0404840) He promised a three-day showcase of the newest and neatest brainstorms, a chance for inventors to rub elbows with other inventors – including, of course, the man who bills himself as the Thomas Edison of Japan, a man who even invented his own name.
  215. Max E. Medley (1990/12/02/0405343) Trios and Quartets In a Medley of Offerings
  216. Walt Whitman (1990/12/02/0405597) Louis Sullivan was the Walt Whitman of American architecture, a sprawling genius of startling originality and unrestrained vitality whose spirit embraced multitudes.
  217. Fortune (1990/12/02/0405607) In East, Anglers Find a Fortune of Tuna
  218. Nero (1990/12/02/0405643) The souvenirs of Mascagni’s opera “Nero” are 10 times as interesting if we remember that the year of the performance in question was 1934 – a time at which Mussolini was shaping up to become the Nero of his day.
  219. Peter Pan (1990/12/07/0406630) Richard Tuttle may be the Peter Pan of contemporary art: the artist who refuses to grow up or old, or to settle down in any way.
  220. John Brown (1990/12/09/0407013) Managing; Trading an Ad for a Bucket of Bolts
  221. Lawrence Taylor (1990/12/10/0407561) But yesterday, he wasn’t an old Lawrence Taylor; he was the Lawrence Taylor of old.
  222. George Plimpton (1990/12/11/0407708) Mr. Morgan also contended that “Dr. Hammer presents himself as the architect of world peace, instrumental in arranging the 1985 Geneva summit between Mikhail S. Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan” while “in fact, he is more like an enthusiastic amateur trying to break into the major leagues, a George Plimpton of international relations.”
  223. Vince Coleman (1990/12/14/0408309) But we’ve been looking for a Vince Coleman for years.
  224. Tennessee Williams (1990/12/20/0409721) I fancy myself, he said, ”the Tennessee Williams of the dairy case.”
  225. Christopher Columbus (1990/12/23/0410524) He’d be considered the Columbus of the art world, only he wasn’t even nearly the first European to claim others’ cultures.
  226. David Lynch (1990/12/23/0410588) That meant, on Wednesday, eager introductory remarks by Mr. Kapilow that largely duplicated his own program notes, some silly overstatements (“Beethoven, the David Lynch of his times.
  227. Michael Jordan (1990/12/24/0410716) But, in reality, I think I could be the Michael Jordan of 12th men.
  228. Herb (1990/12/25/0410876) Review/Film; Woody Allen’s Magical Realism Has an Herb for Every Plaint
  229. Pat Boone (1990/12/30/0411789) How did the Pat Boone of rap – slow, mediocre and unconvincing – get the first No.
  230. +Narcissus (1990/12/30/0411893) (Ages 3 and up) More than two dozen little girls, a full alphabet of them, pick flowers for their friends: “Alison acquired an Amaryllis for Beryl” and “Nancy noticed a Narcissus for Olga” and so on till “Zena zeroed in on a Zinnia for Alison.”+
  231. Mark Oliver Everett (1990/12/30/0412077) Using E for Eagle would have been too easy, so it was an E for Earth stamp that was issued when the rate rose to 25 cents on April 3, 1988.
  232. Bear Bryant (1990/12/30/0412106) The reason Colorado is playing Notre Dame in the Orange Bowl is because Notre Dame (the Bear Bryant of the times), and not the Orange Bowl Committee, insisted a decision be made two weeks before pick-‘em day.

1991

  1. Willie Horton (1991/01/01/0412462) But I think it’s clearly a warning to us as Democrats that we cannot let them make quotas the Willie Horton of 1992.
  2. Franz Kafka (1991/01/04/0412998) When the naked figures of Virgil and Dante board the back of the giant Geryon, with its wrathful fatherly face and its huge scorpionlike tail pointed at them like a sorcerer’s curse, there is the sense of an Oedipal conflict that the Kafka of “The Judgment” would understand.
  3. +Narcissus (1991/01/06/0413250) (Ages 3 and up) More than two dozen little girls, a full alphabet of them, pick flowers for their friends: “Alison acquried an Amaryllis for Beryl” and “Nancy noticed a Narcissus for Olga” and so on till “Zena zeroed in on a Zinnia for Alison.”+
  4. Van Dyck (1991/01/06/0413334) One of the most beautiful portraits of an Englishman ever painted is, for instance, the Van Dyck of William Feilding, 1st Earl of Denbigh.
  5. Shoeless Joe Jackson (1991/01/08/0413837) He’s sort of like the Shoeless Joe Jackson of today, isn’t he?
  6. Thomas Welbank Fowle (1991/01/10/0414354) But give him an F for writing a garish comic book without pictures.
  7. Charles Dickens (1991/01/13/0414982) To make matters more peculiar, Mr. Ackroyd’s is not exactly a Dickens for the 90’s, at least not the 1990’s.
  8. Sky (1991/01/20/0416416) Fish Fall From the Sky for a Reason
  9. Katerina Maleeva (1991/01/20/0416553) But the most intriguing matchup in the women’s fourth round could be between the Katerina Maleeva of Bulgaria, seeded fifth, and her 14-year-old sister Magdalena, who stunned Roslyn Fairbank-Nideffer, 6-2, 6-3.
  10. The Hatter (1991/01/20/0416604) Thomas: Forget the hair club, she’s the Mad Hatter of rap.
  11. Albert Camus (1991/01/27/0418285) When his novel “La Maison de Rendez-vous” appeared in 1965, The Times Literary Supplement of London observed that Mr. Robbe-Grillet had become a gifted pornographer; “Ghosts in the Mirror” also shows him in a new role, that of gifted rhapsodist, akin to the Albert Camus of the North African essays.
  12. Hippocrates (1991/01/27/0418298) I give you the Hippocrates of the quick needle, Dr.
  13. Johann Sebastian Bach (1991/01/27/0418405) How utterly irrelevant this whole esthetic is to the Bach of the cantatas!
  14. Ben Chapman (1991/01/28/0418545) Powell’s last year in the majors was 1945 with a Philadelphia Phillies team that had as an outfielder and a member of its pitching staff for part of that season the Ben Chapman for whom Powell had been traded nine years earlier.
  15. Richard Wagner (1991/02/01/0419348) But David Greenspan apparently aspires to be the Richard Wagner of the genre.
  16. +Emmy (1991/02/06/0420593) Mr. Jagger also appeared in many television plays, and in 1980 he won an Emmy for acting in a religous program, “Independence and ‘76, This Is the Life.”+
  17. Stephen Sondheim (1991/02/06/0420740) In the elegant precision and savage acuity of lyrics for songs like Blizzard of Lies,” “The Wheelers and the Dealers,” “My Attorney Bernie,” “Can’t Take You Nowhere” and “I’m Hip,” to name several of the roughly 100 songs he’s written, Mr. Frishberg might be described as the Stephen Sondheim of jazz songwriting.
  18. Elvis Presley (1991/02/08/0421220) Vanilla Ice has been called the Elvis Presley of rap, but that’s an insult to Presley, who transformed the blues and country music he drew on.
  19. +Trouble (1991/02/08/0421296) Quite a Trouble for Us’+
  20. Emily Dickinson (1991/02/10/0421854) – becoming the Emily Dickinson of the perfectly turned hem.

  22. Tommy Kirk (1991/02/11/0422201) At the lower end of the scale, collectors could get a Tommy Kirk for $6, with the ink still wet.
  23. Andrei Chesnokov (1991/02/15/0423546) Also advancing were Jakob Hlasek of Switzerland and the Andrei Chesnokov of the Soviet Union.
  24. Jesus Christ (1991/02/17/0423941) So far as a rationale can be found in the New Testament – the Jesus of the Gospels, Mr. Greven points out, never urges punishment for children – it comes mostly from assurances of the reality of hell.
  25. Dick Francis (1991/02/17/0423942) Sam Llewellyn has been described as the Dick Francis of sailing, and for good reason, Newgate Callendar said here last year.
  26. Charles Keating (1991/02/17/0423984) Ruling against the Government, a Federal magistrate here has decided that a former mortgage banker charged with a $500 million fraud and described by prosecutors as “the Charles Keating of Virginia” can be freed on bail because, in the magistrate’s view, he is unlikely to flee.
  27. Charles Keating (1991/02/17/0423984) This man is the Charles Keating of Virginia, said Mr.
  28. Vince Lombardi (1991/02/17/0424173) The students consider Mr. Sporney the Vince Lombardi of model-bridge building.
  29. Marcel Proust (1991/02/23/0419929) Now she is the Proust of typewriter jewelry.
  30. Mikhail Gorbachev (1991/02/25/0426013) Had his 11th-hour initiative worked, he might have become for another moment at least the Gorbachev of old, the master statesman and Nobel peace laureate drawing on good will, diplomacy and the vestigial prerogatives of a superpower to snatch peace from the fiery maw of war.
  31. Sawan (1991/02/28/0426642) Today the Villain of Purim, Haman, Is Spelled Saddam
  32. Utah Jazz (1991/03/01/0426957) But over the six weeks of shooting, they had a 10-9 record to drop into a duel with the Utah Jazz for the divisional lead.
  33. Paulina (1991/03/03/0427346) If anger at the British class system drives her in part – “People say, ‘Why do you go on about it; it’s over,’ but it’s never over” – it also feeds her work, as does a wit that proves useful whether she is playing a Paulina of unusual moral authority in “The Winter’s Tale” or a fiercely rapacious Medea.
  34. +Emmy (1991/03/04/0427823) His “Treatment of Doctor Love” recently ran at Playhouse 91, an Off Broadway theater, and he won an Emmy for his work for the television show “Unusual Phenomena.”+
  35. Donald Trump (1991/03/05/0427872) Mr. Tarasov reflects this history in wearing fine European suits and ties but hardly as the Donald Trump of Moscow.
  36. +Bonus (1991/03/07/0428459) In Crowded Japan, a Bonus for Babies Angers Women (front page, Feb. 17) refers to “the coercive 1930’s campaign to ‘breed and multiply’ for the good of the Japanese empire.”+

  38. Dalai Lama (1991/03/12/0429589) But President Bush, who so warmly applauded President Ferdinand E. Marcos of the Philippines, has deferred to China by accusing the Dalai Lama of a “callous attitude” toward the people he has served.
  39. César Baldaccini (1991/03/13/0429750) The evening’s hero was GERARD DEPARDIEU, whose portrayal of the ugly, amorous soldier won the Cesar for Best Actor.
  40. Arata Isozaki (1991/03/17/0430613) With an ISO of 125, Plus-X was nearly two stops slower than Tri-X, but it was finer-grained and sharper.
  41. Margaret Thatcher (1991/03/17/0430682) A front-runner for Ms. Vieira’s “60 Minutes” job is Lesley Stahl, the Margaret Thatcher of television news.
  42. Napoleon (1991/03/17/0430749) The early compositions that established his credentials as the Napoleon of the avant-garde, like “Le Marteau Sans Maitre” and “Le Visage Nuptial,” caught attention for their Serial rigidity and the novel severity of their sonorities.
  43. Henry Ford (1991/03/24/0432181) My father, the Ford Motor Company’s distributor for the entire colony, was known as ”the Henry Ford of Korea.”
  44. Thomas Welbank Fowle (1991/03/24/0432378) Flower , a 29-cent definitive in sheet and booklet form that is similar to the F for Flower non-denominated stamp.
  45. Valentino (1991/03/24/0432396) Willard Espy, the Valentino of word lovers, has built on this thought in Harvard Magazine to suggest
  46. Faust (1991/03/24/0432477) Although Mr. Kraus has been an engaging Faust for decades and will sing that role in tonight’s anniversary concert, I correctly recalled that he was not the Faust of the 1963 performance at which Mr. Ghiaurov and Ms. Freni made their American debuts.
  47. +Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1991/03/24/0432553) As a monologuist, Wallace Shawn recalls both J. D. Salinger and Thomas Bernhard, but the greater influence appears to be the Dostoyevsky of “Notes From the Underground.”+
  48. Cardinal Richelieu (1991/03/26/0432850) He was the Cardinal Richelieu of 10 Downing Street, a civil servant whose mastery of foreign affairs had made him so indispensable to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and her successor, John Major, that in the end he become too notorious for his own good.
  49. Utah Jazz (1991/03/27/0433180) In the minutes before, Barkley, who is battling Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz for runner-up scoring honors behind Michael Jordan, scored 6 of his 32 points, each either giving his team the lead or tying the game.
  50. Leo Tolstoy (1991/03/27/0433213) A bagel’s the Shakespeare, the Tolstoy of flour.
  51. +Gerrit Parmile Wilder (1991/03/28/0433268) Mr. Wilder, in a letter delivered with his papers to the Federal Election Commission today, said the Wilder for President Exploratory Committee was being created “for the purpose of exploring any potential candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the Office of President of the United States of America.”+

  53. P. T. Barnum (1991/03/29/0433543) Mr. Cantor, the P. T. Barnum of the solo show, is the producer of that current exemplar of the genre, A Room of One’s Own.”
  54. Roger Clemens (1991/04/01/0434255) Cheers seems to be the Roger Clemens of prime-time television, renewing its deal with NBC for top dollar.
  55. Charles Dickens (1991/04/07/0435668) Lesser plunges straight into a discussion called “Mothers,” which includes the Dickens of “David Copperfield,” the Lawrence of “Sons and Lovers,” and both Peter Handke and Harold Brodkey in their stories about a mother’s death.
  56. Queen Victoria (1991/04/11/0436543) Mrs. Henry Parish 2d, as she prefers to be known professionally, could be called the Queen Victoria of fabric swatches.
  57. Clark Kent (1991/04/12/0436865) Although the juiciest version of the story has Mr. Viertel, the Clark Kent of Broadway, flattening Mr. Freydberg, that one is untrue.
  58. Jackie Robinson (1991/04/14/0437373) And as Augusta National’s first black, Ron Townsend is a member under a microscope, the Jackie Robinson of country-club golf, a 15-handicap golfer with the corporate-honcho background that Augusta National prefers.
  59. Cheuk Wan Chi (1991/04/15/0437527) The sleeping episode and other infractions were on Lieutenant Dunkel’s mind as he waited near the Jamaica Arms for the patrol car, patrolling the G for George sector, to show up.
  60. George Burns (1991/04/15/0437671) And it was a fivegone conclusion that Mr. Borge – who is becoming the George Burns of the keyboard – would win a career achievement award at the convention.
  61. Audrey Hepburn (1991/04/22/0439391) But the Audrey Hepburn of popular memory dates back to the 22 films she made between 1951 and 1966.
  62. Ricardo Reis (1991/04/30/0442058) The conversations between the Ricardo Reis of the novel and Pessoa will have more meaning to students of Portuguese literature than to American readers.
  63. Del Wilkes (1991/05/01/0442207) (The effort to claim the Patriot for the S.D.I.
  64. Stretch (1991/05/03/0442639) New Florio Fiscal Move: Selling a Stretch of I-95
  65. Kitty Kelley (1991/05/04/0442861) Mr. Fitzwater also attacked Mr. Sick, saying, “Gary Sick is the Kitty Kelley of foreign policy.”
  66. Bob Dylan (1991/05/10/0444418) Indeed, she brings to mind the Bob Dylan of the 1967 D. A. Penne baker film “Don’t Look Back” in her ability to appear elusive, dangerous, and at all times absolutely in control of those around her.
  67. Leona Helmsley (1991/05/10/0444480) Cartoons depict him with his hand caught in a cookie jar, and a local columnist has compared him to other haughty hoarders, calling him the Leona Helmsley of the San Francisco Bay area.

  69. Vezina (1991/05/15/0445675) Along with major trophies like the Hart for the most valuable player and the Vezina for the best goalie, there is the Lady Byng for gentlemanly play, the Selke for best defensive forward and even the Budweiser Man of the Year award for many positive attributes, none of which involve consumption of beer.
  70. Madonna (1991/05/16/0445832) Fantasy doesn’t play a part, Mr. Ancona said, dwarfed by a statue of the Madonna of Perpetual Help, Castellammare’s patron saint, which is perched in a shrine inside the social club.
  71. Stan Musial (1991/05/19/0446604) A provocative, spirited collection – his best so far – by the Stan Musial of essay writing.

  77. Dwight Gooden (1991/05/31/0449342) An East Harlem doctor once described by a state investigator as “the Dwight Gooden of Medicaid billers,” ordering far more prescriptions and services than any doctor in the program’s 25-year history, was indicted today for Medicaid fraud.
  78. Dwight Gooden (1991/05/31/0449342) This guy is the Dwight Gooden of Medicaid billers, James Durkin, the director of the state office that investigates Medicaid abuse, said at the time.
  79. Kitty Kelley (1991/06/02/0449588) Who does Camille Paglia think she is, the Kitty Kelley of academia?
  80. Barry Bonds (1991/06/02/0449831) Much to Pittsburgh’s relief, though, the Barry Bonds of old, the hitter capable of carrying a team for a week, a month, a season, has found himself and his stroke.

  85. Robin Hood (1991/06/09/0451468) Since Mr. Costner is ”a Robin Hood for the 90’s,” as the producers proclaim, this version of the medieval fable is violent, even though it has received a PG-13 rating.
  86. Klaas Storme (1991/06/09/0451475) The most compelling performance was that of Mr. Weiss, a Zaza for the ancien regime, progressively transforming himself over the course of the evening into the ghastly porcelain figurine who wound up dancing decorously with Casanova at the ball.

  101. +Bronco (1991/07/06/0457730) I can hear Tom now: “Wrangler, saddle up a Bronco for my Sidekick, Little Jimmy 4x4, and we’ll rescue Jane from that Cherokee over at Silverado.”+
  102. Madonna (1991/07/06/0457816) In Vojslavice, south of the capital, a Madonna of 1340 from Utrecht, the Netherlands, is also gone.
  103. +Rita (1991/07/07/0458067) Although Heather Ehlers tends to punctuate the ends of scenes with silent exclamations of self-satisfaction, she is a Rita of admirable diction, variable dialect and good transitions – and a solid grasp of “things that matter.”+
  104. Joseph Epstein (1991/07/07/0458168) The Philip Callow selection is interesting for the quotation from Leopardi, and the Joseph Epstein for the quotations from Chekhov and T. S. Eliot.
  105. Mike Heath (1991/07/08/0458385) In a stirring collision with the Mike Heath of the Atlanta Braves, Larkin bounced the catcher from a game with a cut forehead and a stiff neck.
  106. Frank Lloyd Wright (1991/07/11/0458936) Many consider him the Frank Lloyd Wright of industrial design, not surprising since both men were born and raised in Wisconsin and did perhaps their most important work in the Middle West.
  107. Ken Russell (1991/07/12/0459273) There are times when Mr. MacMillan can be mistaken for the Ken Russell of British ballet; like the film director, he would have us believe that true character can be revealed by the outrageous image.
  108. P. T. Barnum (1991/07/13/0459422) Tina Brown, who is the P. T. Barnum of the magazine world, obviously knows all this, even though she is originally from England, a country where journalism is not seasonal but schizoid, veering wildly between high dudgeon and women in thong swimsuits.
  109. Henry Kissinger (1991/07/14/0459865) Mr. Roach’s interest goes beyond aspirations to become the Henry Kissinger of the audio industry.
  110. Pablo Picasso (1991/07/17/0460751) JACK LANG, the French culture minister, described Mr. Davis as ”the Picasso of jazz.”
  111. Elizabeth Taylor (1991/07/21/0461868) But even if she turns out to be the Liz Taylor of her day, going through men like diamond necklaces, her audience is already lined up at theaters and newsstands and video stores.
  112. George Steinbrenner (1991/07/21/0461989) In that history, Modell has been called the George Steinbrenner of the Midwest, another owner who meddles too much and hurts his team, and in the same breath he is praised as a man who provides the N.F.L., as it gears for the 90’s and beyond, with continuity, a sense of history, intense loyalty and, judiciously, service.
  113. Moses (1991/07/21/0461993) Phrases like “high priest” and ”the Moses of the art world” set the tone.
  114. Elton John (1991/07/29/0463672) His nasal intonation and accentuated phrases strongly recalled the Elton John of the early 70’s, but omitting Mr. John’s melismatic gospel-style embellishments.

  121. Socrates (1991/08/09/0465813) Saving the image of the game – he fired Dave Pallone basically for being gay – was his job, but as a man who saw himself as the Socrates of sport, that public-relations function would have eventually rubbed up against his higher conceits.
  122. Babe Ruth (1991/08/11/0466280) Soon, Americans could immediately recognize an Eisenstaedt picture, and several generations of photographers, amateurs and professionals alike, tried to emulate their hero, the Babe Ruth of 35-millimeter photography.
  123. Michael Jordan (1991/08/11/0466343) On a recent evening on the Upper West Side, Earl Manigault recalled the days when he was the Michael Jordan of Harlem, a man who jumped so high he once believed he could take off after a running start and end up sitting on the rim.
  124. Nicolas de Largillière (1991/08/11/0466533) Once again, there are paintings that would be welcome in any national gallery – the Guido Reni “David and Abigail,” the Strozzi “Martyrdom of St. Justina,” the Salvator Rosa “Baptism of the Eunuch,” the tiny “Magdalen in a Landscape” by Willem van Mieris, the “St. Philip” by Georges de la Tour, and the Nicolas de Largilliere of himself in his studio, complete with his engraver and one of his patrons.
  125. Christopher Columbus (1991/08/11/0466540) Winsor’s withering assault on the Columbus of legend was the exception in the late 19th century, and not taken kindly by those who held to the prevailing image.
  126. Erik Howard (1991/08/13/0466736) He looked like the Erik Howard of old, except that his ponytail was a little longer and his Fu Manchu moustache was gone.
  127. Don Nelson (1991/08/14/0466892) I call him the Don Nelson of agents, said longtime client John Lucas, who has now retired.
  128. Jesus Christ (1991/08/18/0467564) He details the debates in many Christian denominations over the Jesus of history versus the Christ of faith; the ethical problems raised for Christians by contemporary culture; debates over whether to demythologize the Bible or interpret it literally; and the intellectual conundrum posed by matching a good God with an often evil world, known in theological terms as theodicy.
  129. Hulk Hogan (1991/08/18/0467633) In The National Review, on the other hand, Jim Atkinson, referring to the comedienne as ”the Hulk Hogan of feminism,” perceives her as “a cunning marketeer who has figured out how to parlay a form of vulgar reverse sexism into stardom.”
  130. Frank Stella (1991/08/18/0467814) There is the Frank Stella of “Gran Cairo,” a 1962 square filled with different colored bands that owes something to Josef Albers; then there is the Frank Stella of “Silverstone,” a baroque extravaganza in aluminum and fiberglass dabbed expressionistically with color (1981).
  131. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1991/08/20/0468225) Here was one of the great musical prodigies, a man who by the age of 18 had composed major works for the chamber and orchestral repertory, who was responsible for the revival of interest in Bach in the 19th century, who was the acknowledged leader of German musical life before his death at 38 in 1847, a composer Schumann called the Mozart of the 19th century.
  132. David Souter (1991/08/22/0468451) Dr. Mark R. Chassin, the California physician nominated to be New York State’s next health commissioner, has emerged as the David Souter of gubernatorial appointees, a man with little public record on major health issues and little freedom to stake out his positions.
  133. David Souter (1991/08/22/0468513) The nominee for health chief of New York State, Dr. Mark Chassin, is emerging as the David Souter of gubernatorial appointees, a man with little public record on major health issues and little freedom to stake out his positions.

  138. Robin Hood (1991/09/09/0472458) He is called the Robin Hood of Patagonia.

  141. Emmy (1991/09/20/0475061) Mr. Carson, who won an Emmy for his performance in the television docudrama “Fast Break to Glory,” should be one of the year’s movie discoveries.
  142. Stepin Fetchit (1991/09/22/0475339) As a Caucasian who has seen just about every Charlie Chan movie there is, I must respond to the article by Gish Jen about stereotypes that perpetuate Charlie Chan as the Stepin Fetchit of Orientals [ “Challenging the Asian Illusion,” Aug. 11 ] .
  143. Mark Oliver Everett (1991/09/22/0475599) An imperforate pair of the E for Earth stamp in 1988 is priced at $160.
  144. Johnny Appleseed (1991/09/24/0476016) What about news reports that Biosphere 2 is basically a survivalist cult built around the magnetic personality of John Allen, whom The Village Voice characterized as “much more the Jim Jones than the Johnny Appleseed of the ecology movement?”
  145. Robert Redford (1991/09/27/0476549) Macaulay Culkin, the 10-year-old star of “Home Alone” and the Robert Redford of the kindergarten set, can be seen in the flesh at Ensemble Studio Theater, 549 West 52d Street, on Oct. 9 and 10 for the opening of its annual Octoberfest.
  146. The Ultimate Warrior (1991/09/27/0476582) Caustic commentaries will be made in “1991 – A Performance Chronicle (The Rediscovery of America by the Warrior for Gringostroika),” a theatrical piece by the Mexican-born Guillermo Gomez-Pena that examines conflicting notions of the “discovery” of America.
  147. +The Ultimate Warrior (1991/09/27/0476582) GUILLERMO GOMEZ-PENA, a performance artist, in “1991 – A Performance Chronicle (The Rediscovery of America by the Warrior for Gringostroika).”+
  148. Vincent van Gogh (1991/09/29/0476983) A 1929 first edition of “Tintin au Pays des Soviets” recently sold for about $3,450 at current exchange rates, making Herge what Mr. Crochelet termed ”the Van Gogh of the B.D.

  150. Bach (1991/09/29/0477239) And I know just the music for the cassette player during the hourlong drive to the orchard: “Stealin’ Apples,” a wonderful tune by Fats Waller, a Bach of our time.
  151. Grover Cleveland (1991/09/30/0477414) Ms. Tandy is the 60th person to participate in the campaign, said Peter Rogers, president and creative director, if Claudette Colbert, the Grover Cleveland of Blackglama, is counted twice for separate ads in 1971 and 1978.
  152. Al Harazin (1991/10/03/0477963) Ask Vincent, ask Frank Robinson, ask Bill White for lists of candidates who might have had the training and the experience to compete with an Al Harazin for the Mets’ general manager’s job and not many names tumble from their lips.
  153. Kevin Costner (1991/10/06/0478532) Part of the reason for Mr. Brooks’s success is marketing: with his meat-and-potatoes image, goony grin and virtuous all-American values, he is the Kevin Costner of country.
  154. Joyce Carol Oates (1991/10/06/0478549) He became the Joyce Carol Oates of pop, incredibly prolific with variable quality.

  161. Rosa Parks (1991/10/14/0480435) They all called her aloof; yet J.C. Alvarez, a former aide to Senator John Danforth and staffer at the E.E.O.C., suggested that she might want to turn her experience before the Senate into a book or movie, saying she wanted to be ”the Rosa Parks of sexual harassment.”
  162. Isaac Newton (1991/10/17/0481046) Some of the judges on the Nobel committee described Dr. de Gennes as ”the Isaac Newton of our time” because of his success in applying mathematics to generalized explanations of many different phenomena.

  169. Barbara Woodhouse (1991/10/24/0482422) But Lady Caroline Wrey, otherwise known as Lady Velcro, the Barbara Woodhouse of windows, has a foolproof barometer.
  170. B (1991/10/27/0482925) Tackle Dennis Byrd, the leading pass rusher last year, gets a B for drawing the heat on the defensive line.
  171. B (1991/10/27/0482925) Trevor Matich gets a B for his versatility.

  179. Al Sharpton (1991/11/10/0485911) But the Al Sharpton of “For the Color of His Skin” is a more sympathetic figure than the Al Sharpton of the daily press.
  180. Benjamin Franklin (1991/11/10/0485953) Olympic athletes, for instance, hardly ever wear glasses sprinting across the finish line, and neither do most rock stars when performing, excepting of course the Ben Franklin of rock, Elton John.
  181. Norman Rockwell (1991/11/12/0486441) This will not come as a blow to many art critics and Conceptual Artists, who have long regarded Christo as the Norman Rockwell of Conceptual Art, and his wrapping projects as a one-note exercise.
  182. David Dukes (1991/11/13/0486583) The most influential public figures in this country over the last month have all three been black, as though someone was trying to send a cosmic message to the David Dukes of the world, to counter them with Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill and Magic Johnson.
  183. Johnny Carson (1991/11/13/0486648) was given prominence on national television by two of the best known figures in the country, former Prime Minister Garret FitzGerald and Gay Byrne, the Johnny Carson of Ireland.

  186. Queen Victoria (1991/11/17/0487475) He was introduced by the moderator at one candidates’ forum as ”the Queen Victoria of Louisiana politics” because he has been such a domineering figure for so long.
  187. John Fairchild (1991/11/17/0487607) Not until 1888 did Ward McAllister – the John Fairchild of his day – designate New York’s “400,” those who would be at ease, and not make others ill at ease, in the ballroom of Mrs. William B. Astor Jr., then the city’s social doyenne.
  188. Bobby Bonilla (1991/11/20/0488120) So given that knowledge, what would Garvey do if he found himself at playing prime again, the Bobby Bonilla of 1991 instead of 1982?
  189. Robert Redford (1991/11/20/0488274) He has become the Robert Redford of hate.
  190. Pablo Picasso (1991/11/23/0488925) I was the Picasso of cardboard, he said to scattered applause.

  192. Lauren Bacall (1991/11/24/0489012) France’s Domaine Moussiere Sancerre of 1990 is described as ”the Lauren Bacall of sancerres – sultry, smoky, sophisticated,” and Hidden Cellars Sauvignon Blanc of 1989 as “tangos on your taste buds with lemony melon flavors.”
  193. Sergei Bubka (1991/11/28/0490182) Charles Hoff, the Sergei Bubka of his day, achieved the ninth of his 11 world indoor pole-vault records in 1926 at the armory on 168th Street.

  195. Neil Marriott (1991/12/01/0490825) Later that day I registered at the Marriott for the following night and attended a conference there.
  196. Babe Ruth (1991/12/02/0491092) He’s the Babe Ruth of civil rights lobbyists.
  197. Young (1991/12/04/0491474) Tapping the Young for Messages to Their Peers
  198. Paul (1991/12/06/0491860) If you are a lawyer in front of her and have crossed your t’s and move along with your case, you don’t usually have any trouble, said Paul Sullivan, a lawyer here who also attends the St. Paul of the Cross Roman Catholic Church with Judge Lupo.
  199. Paul Gauguin (1991/12/08/0492105) And if that is not complexity enough, try the video, “Histoire d’un Blanc,” which comes with the show and which features the artist doing a Gauguin of his own in a tropical mirage.
  200. Thomas Paine (1991/12/08/0492265) Ted Nelson is an outspoken author and visionary described as everything from ”the Thomas Paine of the personal computer revolution” to a “madman extraordinaire.”
  201. Michael Jordan (1991/12/08/0492282) She’s the Michael Jordan of actresses.
  202. Ernie Banks (1991/12/09/0492566) Sticking his hand in a glass bowl, Abedi Pele drew out the name of his own national team, Ghana, for an elimination round with seasoned Algeria and up-and-coming Uganda, making it possible for a star like Abedi Pele to become the Ernie Banks of Africa, never reaching the championship round in his sport.
  203. Oskar (1991/12/11/0493260) I frequently use the Oskar for sauces.
  204. Willie Horton (1991/12/13/0493724) If the Governor decides to run, the Rochester serial murderer could become the Willie Horton of 1992.
  205. Mikhail Gorbachev (1991/12/15/0494227) Immediately after the coup, Mr. Gorbachev unleashed a quick torrent of measures that seemed to conjure up the Gorbachev of the summer past.
  206. Mikhail Gorbachev (1991/12/15/0494227) In this post-coup period, he even had a last hurrah on the international stage like the Gorbachev of old, when he matched President Bush’s sweeping cuts of tactical weapons in early October.
  207. Brandon Tartikoff (1991/12/17/0494773) So in came the new executive producer, Al Harazin, trying to be the Brandon Tartikoff of baseball, turning around his series as Tartikoff overhauled NBC’s prime-time schedule.
  208. Balthazar (1991/12/18/0494811) A Methuselah of Pol Roger goes for about $250, a Salmanazar of Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc 1982 from California, about $400, and a Balthazar of Veuve Clicquot, about $850.
  209. Charles Barkley (1991/12/18/0494852) He’s kind of like the Charles Barkley of the Dolphins.
  210. Robin Hood (1991/12/19/0495009) The monthly bulletin of the International Foundation for Art Research dubbed Professor Feller a Robin Hood of the arts because he frequently stole from one museum or private collection and lent or donated the spoils to another.
  211. Titian (1991/12/20/0495282) In fact, the talk in the art world is that they bought the Titian for the Getty, too.
  212. Jesus Christ (1991/12/23/0495945) Peering Past Faith to Glimpse the Jesus of History
  213. +Jesus Christ (1991/12/23/0495960) Father Meier also said that the Jesus of Mr. Mitchell’s book was based on “no scientific objective criteria” but on “whatever agrees with our notion of what true religion is.”+
  214. Jesus Christ (1991/12/23/0495960) Both authors say scholarly inquiry into the historical Jesus can never replace the Jesus of the church’s belief.
  215. Thomas Paine (1991/12/23/0495993) MARTIN GARBUS, a Manhattan lawyer, said he feels like the Thomas Paine of Prague.
  216. Allan Oviedo (1991/12/24/0496004) Allegre, who has been a Jet for only one week, is 32, as is McNeil.
  217. David Klingler (1991/12/24/0496030) Although the Giants do not like to trade up for a higher draft choice, they may be tempted if the right quarterback, perhaps a David Klingler of the University of Houston, is available.
  218. Mikhail Gorbachev (1991/12/30/0497237) Will John F. Akers be remembered as the Mikhail Gorbachev of I.B.M.?

  2. Paul Newman (1992/01/09/0499117) Although some in New York’s Russian community have dubbed Mr. Solomin the Paul Newman of Russia, the bearded, 6-foot-tall, hazel-eyed performer bears more of a resemblance in person to the actor Robert Shaw, projecting the same on-stage gravitas and rugged introspection.
  3. Karl Sax (1992/01/10/0499201) The talks with Schueler and Steve Sax’s waiver of his right to block a trade to the White Sox, would seem to indicate that the Sax for Melido Perez deal has been revived after falling apart last week.
  4. Amelia Earhart (1992/01/17/0500887) In New York State, it seems, the Amelia Earhart of women’s courtroom dress was one Carolyn Peck of Syracuse.
  5. Beck (1992/01/17/0500928) It wanted to book Jerry Zaks’s much-anticipated revival of “Guys and Dolls” into the Beck for an April opening, but “Grand Hotel” just kept on running.
  6. Michael Jordan (1992/01/24/0502719) The Bills are not necessarily in trouble in Sunday’s Super Bowl just because Thomas wants to be known as the Michael Jordan of his team, leaving the implication that Jim Kelly, the quarterback, is merely Scottie Pippen.

  12. Tony Martin (1992/02/05/0505706) What makes Smith’s efforts worthy of Hall of Fame consideration is that one of the youngsters he recruited went by the name of Connie Hawkins, at least until they started calling him the Hawk for his soaring drives to the basket during a stellar career in the National Basketball Association.
  13. Henry Higgins (1992/02/09/0506507) Mr. Easton, who likes to think of himself as the Henry Higgins of Hollywood – he is even incorporated as such: “The Henry Higgins of Hollywood Inc.” – is called upon several times a day to be just that.

  15. George H. W. Bush (1992/02/14/0507552) But the first part of the strategy may prove more challenging, in part because conservative Republicans count Mr. Bush as a moderate apostate and in part because he has, in effect, begun a campaign against the George Bush of 1980.
  16. Carl Lewis (1992/02/15/0507721) But even if she did not, she has at least established herself as the Carl Lewis of her sport, its dominant sprinter.

  23. Norman Schwarzkopf (1992/02/23/0509435) When people here dubbed Eduardo Ieno the Norman Schwarzkopf of Naples, it was because, by this city’s standards, he had achieved something as decisive, bold and gutsy as the American general did in Kuwait: He forced Neapolitans to pay their water bills.
  24. Jesse Jackson (1992/02/26/0509904) In some ways, he is sort of the Jesse Jackson of the right, said Mr. Gingrich of Mr. Buchanan in an interview.
  25. Diamond Jim Brady (1992/02/26/0510044) He was the Diamond Jim Brady of his day, with more than a touch of the rock star thrown in, as he was pursued by mobs of adoring fans in the street.

  43. Jerry Brown (1992/03/30/0517693) The Jerry Brown running for President in 1992 is at odds on crucial issues and campaign themes with the Jerry Brown who ran for President in 1976, the Jerry Brown who tried again in 1980 and even the Jerry Brown of just a year ago.
  44. Willie Horton (1992/03/30/0517697) You editorialize March 3 that I am turning New York into the Willie Horton of 1992 by suggesting that “New York and other large cities are responsible for their own dire fiscal straits because they are indifferent to rapacious unions.”

  47. Marcel Proust (1992/04/05/0519231) For some reason he has rejected the gold (there is nothing, for example, from Roger Kahn, the Proust of the Brooklyn Dodgers) for the dross – including selections by Steve Howe about his drug problems and by Steve Garvey about his marital problems, as well as an interminable piece by Tommy Lasorda, which reflects the manager’s amiable logorrhea.

  50. Jesus Christ (1992/04/11/0520534) Since the 18th century this belief has exposed Christianity to the work of historians who set out to demonstrate that the Jesus of history was not the Christ of the great Christian creeds.

  62. Chuck Yeager (1992/05/07/0526474) But if Jordan is the Chuck Yeager of basketball, Julius Erving was its Charles Lindbergh and Connie Hawkins was its Wright Brothers.

  65. Al Capone (1992/05/10/0527307) field agent was not your run-of-the-mill public servant, but a rabid zealot (”the Al Capone of the auditors”), Jill could use a traffic cop to sort out all the suspects eager to dance on the dead man’s grave.
  66. Willie Horton (1992/05/11/0527805) If welfare emerges as the Willie Horton of 1992, Mr. Cuomo may have wound up on the wrong side of it in a national campaign, even though he sought to curb the soaring costs of social spending programs.

  73. Leo Tolstoy (1992/05/17/0529227) It is easy to sympathize with African resentment of the attitude epitomized by Mr. Trevor-Roper, or for that matter by Saul Bellow asking, “Who is the Tolstoy of the Zulus?”

  82. Rodney Dangerfield (1992/06/05/0533773) Even today, the infomercial remains the Rodney Dangerfield of advertising, shunned and doubted for many reasons: state and Federal investigations of infomercial producers, complaints about product performance and, most crucial, a belief that a lengthy commercial disguised as a conventional program – like a talk show complete with host, theme song and studio audience – unfairly masks what is nothing more than a sales spiel.
  83. Freddie Laker (1992/06/05/0533783) He was the Freddie Laker of his time: just as Mr. Laker and imitators like People Express opened up air travel to the masses in the late 1970’s, Mr. Cook, the creator of the packaged holiday, opened up the world of international leisure travel to the middle class of the last century.

  89. Eleanor Roosevelt (1992/06/14/0535834) For Ms. Cook to take the Eleanor Roosevelt of the 1930’s and 1940’s – a woman for whom upbringing, etiquette, politeness and other social mores of the time were the guidelines and restrictions of her behavior – and push 1990’s attitudes and so-called liberation upon her is inappropriate, offensive and ill-fitting.

  97. McCoy Tyner (1992/06/22/0537850) Mr. Tyner is no longer the McCoy Tyner of his acolytes; for the rest of the set he put on a show of improvisation that at times seemed to empty the hall of air.

  109. Robert De Niro (1992/07/05/0540830) Emulating Brando, Duvall and especially the De Niro of “Mean Streets” and “Taxi Driver,” they discharged raw aggression, opting for roles as messed-up loners.

  113. Napoleon (1992/07/12/0541941) No question that Sam Walton was a Napoleon of merchandising, keeping his troops lean and competitive, demanding 16-hour days of his managers, giving his “associates” pep talks, exhorting them to look customers in the eye, personally leading them in the company cheer (“Give me a W!

  133. Dick Clark (1992/08/11/0549300) Worse, perhaps, than the continual cheerfulness of Bob Costas – the Dick Clark of Barcelona – or the quantity of the advertising was its quality, or lack thereof.

Moses (1992/08/21/0551555) Though clearly shocked by the dimensions of his defeat, which saw several Cabinet Ministers and the Speaker of the House lose their seats, Sir Lynden, whose supporters called him ”the Moses of the Bahamas,” accepted the rejection of his leadership calmly and without the rancor that characterized the months of campaigning.
  141. Lyndon B. Johnson (1992/08/23/0551865) Mr. Keating, 48 years old, has been described as the Lyndon B. Johnson of Australian politics, an expert in the sort of back-room maneuvering that he used to drive Mr. Hawke from the leadership last December.
  142. Titian (1992/08/23/0551899) We could even believe that the Titian of St. John the Evangelist on Patmos had always been installed as it is now – as a ceiling painting set in a simulated Renaissance ceiling – rather than as a painting that looked out of place on a wall.
  143. Steve Jobs (1992/08/24/0552306) But now the 36-year-old entrepreneur, often called the Steve Jobs of Japan in reference to the Apple Computer co-founder, is in the midst of a fight to save his company from bankruptcy.

  167. Dale Carnegie (1992/09/23/0558269) And much of it may not even be who the players are as much as how Pat Riley, the Dale Carnegie of coaches, can motivate them.
  168. David Duke (1992/09/23/0558348) It’s more like a David Duke for me than a Willie Horton in that you try to flame racial tensions rather than try to bring people together, and then make excuses about it.
  169. Walt Frazier (1992/09/24/0558523) While he never became the Walt Frazier of the Knicks, as he had dreamed as a boy watching games from the nose-bleed seats in Madison Square Garden, he was many times a fine Mark Jackson.

  182. Cyrano de Bergerac (1992/10/21/0564700) A sous-chef, in other words, is vice chef, sometimes shadow chef, frequently chef-by-fiat, often actually ghost chef, the Cyrano de Bergerac of cuisine.
  183. Michael Jordan (1992/10/21/0564706) Yet his behavior suggests that he wants to be two people, the Air Jordan of the carefully organized media event and Michael Jordan, whose version of the truth seems to be made up as he goes along.
  184. Page (1992/10/22/0564922) Carnegie Hall Jazzes Itself Up, Welcoming a Page of U.S. History

  187. Ross Perot (1992/10/28/0566139) Will it be the Ross Perot of news accounts, who has been badly damaged by his complaint of Republican dirty tricks, or the Ross Perot of his own, enormously expensive television advertising campaign?
  188. +Ross Perot (1992/10/28/0566143) Now the main question seems to be which media image will prevail: the Ross Perot of the news stories (Paranoid!”+
  189. Ross Perot (1992/10/28/0566143) ), or the Ross Perot of the advertisements (down-to-earth, sober, pragmatic).
  190. Alger Hiss (1992/10/29/0566360) Fate and time have changed the Alger Hiss of the grainy newsreels, who fenced cockily with Mr. Nixon, Representative Karl Mundt of South Dakota and other members of the House committee.
  191. Ross Perot (1992/10/29/0566366) The founder of the giant Hyundai industrial group and now this country’s most outspoken presidential candidate, Chung Ju Yung, is tired of hearing himself described as the Ross Perot of South Korea.
  192. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (1992/10/30/0566594) They are closer to the assertive image that led an article in the conservative journal The American Spectator to label her ”the Winnie Mandela of American politics.”

  196. Donald Trump (1992/11/06/0568315) She describes herself as ”the Donald Trump of the horse show world,” buying and selling horses like so many pieces of real estate, pocketing a profit and never shedding a tear as she watches her property being trucked away.
  197. +Jesus Christ (1992/11/06/0568507) His method is scholarly but inexact: by comparing the accounts of Jesus’ life set down in the four Gospels, and using evidence from the Dead Sea Scrolls and recent archeological discoveries, Mr. Wilson attempts to create a dispassionate portrait of “the real Jesus, the Jesus of History.”+
  198. Bill Clinton (1992/11/08/0568856) I believe that the Bill Clinton of 1992 is the same Bill Clinton of 1969.
  199. Tom Downey (1992/11/08/0568892) But last week he was defeated by someone reminiscent of the Tom Downey of old: a young Turk who said the incumbent had become too distant.
  200. Tom Downey (1992/11/08/0569040) And last week, they resoundingly defeated Mr. Downey in favor of someone who was remarkably reminiscent of the Tom Downey of old: a young Turk from the Suffolk County Legislature who said the incumbent had become too high and mighty and distant.

  202. +Mike Tyson (1992/11/11/0569454) Even if Tyson at that point was not the Tyson of old, it would have been an easy fight for him.”+
  203. Roger Maris (1992/11/12/0569742) It brought in more than $50 million in pay-per-view billings from 1.45 million homes, “sort of the Roger Maris of pay-per-view events,” Mr. Abraham said, mixing his sports.
  204. Little (1992/11/15/0570436) Pete Bodo’s enjoyable “Not Quite Golf and Not Quite Hunting, but a Little of Each” (The Times, Nov. 8), recognized the growing popularity of sporting clays, but may have given some readers the impression that the sport is rather elitist.
  205. Stephen King (1992/11/15/0570452) It is almost an exact analogy to call Sir Walter Scott the Stephen King of his day.
  206. George III of Great Britain (1992/11/15/0570554) The tribe had been granted the 144,000 acres by the King George III of England in 1763 in return for giving up claim to a much larger tract.
  207. Pat Buchanan (1992/11/15/0570584) The first was from Barbara Ehrenreich, the Pat Buchanan of radical feminism, calling Mr. Buttafuoco a “Guido-type person,” and then, lest you miss the slur, asking pardon for “the obnoxious ethnic reference.”
  208. Madonna (1992/11/15/0570735) Didn’t you once say you wanted to be the Madonna of tennis?
  209. Barry Bonds (1992/11/19/0571427) The 27-year-old Hayes is not the Barry Bonds of third basemen, and he might have had a career season when he hit .257 and delivered 18 homers and 66 runs batted in, but he silenced the criticism at a troubling position, and now the nagging questions will start again.
  210. Allan Oviedo (1992/11/25/0572738) Although Eatman has been a Jet for only two seasons, he knows about the history.
  211. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1992/11/26/0572900) Don’t expect boilerplate Euro-bashing from Mr. Frank, who has been called the Martin Luther King of American Indians.
  212. N (1992/11/29/0573233) The H stands for hemagglutinin, the N for neuraminidase; these are the two antigens of the influenza virus.
  213. Lord Byron (1992/11/29/0573421) Leonard Cohen, the Lord Byron of Rock-and-Roll
  214. Paul Morel (1992/11/29/0573468) Sons is the word in the title; but it’s partly thanks to Edward Garnett’s intervention that we remember chiefly just the one son, Paul, the Paul Morel of endless exegeses, the one who gets identified with D. H. Lawrence.
  215. James Alexander Brewer (1992/12/04/0574227) Yount, a Brewer for his entire 19 years in the majors, became a free agent after he chose not to exercise an option in his old contract for next year at a $3.2 million salary.
  216. +Marilyn Monroe (1992/12/11/0575823) Her only problem, if you could call it that, is looking like a cross between the young Mrs. Kennedy and the Marilyn Monroe of “The Misfits.”+
  217. Donald Trump (1992/12/13/0576115) Father Ritter himself was often mentioned in the same sentence with Mother Teresa, but perhaps Charles M. Sennott’s phrase, ”the Donald Trump of Catholicism,” better captures the personal drive and entrepreneurial spirit that led to Covenant House’s phenomenal growth.
  218. +Arthur Koestler (1992/12/13/0576130) In some ways, “The Porcupine” brings to mind the political literature of 50 years ago: Andre Malraux, George Orwell and particularly the Arthur Koestler of “Darkness at Noon.”+
  219. Bill Gates (1992/12/13/0576218) I’M the Bill Gates of computer culture, says Jeff Armstrong, who’s been satirizing the Microsoft chairman and lesser members of the industry for six years as one of the world’s first high-tech comedians.
  220. Tom Cruise (1992/12/13/0576330) I’m the Tom Cruise of Somalia.
  221. Mark Morris (1992/12/14/0576566) It is perfectly in tune with revisionist French versions of “Romeo and Juliet” set on the Eastern side of the Berlin wall, Swedish productions like Mr. Ek’s “Swan Lake,” which puts men as well as women in tutus just like “The Hard Nut” and the kind of “Giselle” with spoken text that Mr. Gallotta, the Mark Morris of France, threatens to put on next year.
  222. Robert Chambers (1992/12/15/0576649) What he will say is that the Robert Chambers that’s there today is not the Robert Chambers of five years ago, and he would like to be released, said Brian O’Dwyer, his lawyer.
  223. John L. Lewis (1992/12/20/0577640) Hoffa lacked the platform eloquence of a John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers or a Walter Reuther of the United Auto Workers.
  224. Walter Reuther (1992/12/20/0577640) Hoffa lacked the platform eloquence of a John L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers or a Walter Reuther of the United Auto Workers.
  225. Red Adair (1992/12/20/0577852) LAWRENCE S. EAGLEBURGER doesn’t look much like the Red Adair of foreign policy, flaunting his lame-duck status with a crippled bird pin stuck in his lapel.
  226. Mona Lisa (1992/12/20/0577926) The 54-square-foot Sepphoris mosaic, known as the Mona Lisa of the Galilee, which had been on exhibit at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, has been returned to its place in the mosaic floor.

  2. Lincoln (1993/01/03/0580476) But Ford revamped the Lincoln for 1990, and the real news in automotive cabin-cruisers this year comes from Cadillac, which has stretched and redesigned its 1993 Fleetwood four-door, making it the longest – and generally the biggest – production car sold anywhere in the world.
  3. Golden Fleece (1993/01/03/0580570) A flat-panel video screen larger than a few inches has been the Golden Fleece for television manufacturers for years.

  11. Augusto Pinochet (1993/01/10/0581874) The issuance of the pardons by a President who is himself seriously implicated in the conduct he pardons, after repeatedly misleading investigators about notes he now says he will produce, makes the United States President no better than an Augusto Pinochet of Chile or a Jorge Videla of Argentina.
  12. Joey Bishop (1993/01/15/0583116) Or will the waspish host of television’s first post-modern talk show turn out to be the Joey Bishop of the 1990’s?

  22. Antonio Stradivari (1993/02/06/0588339) That’s because Eden is the home of “The One and Only, Original Kazoo Company Inc.,” the world’s only remaining factory for metal kazoos – the Stradivarius of kazoos.

  28. Michael Jordan (1993/02/10/0589436) Erving was the Michael Jordan of his time, but what a different time that was.

  33. Luke Perry (1993/02/22/0592045) Less elaborate science-fiction than clever adventure caper, “The Tomorrow People” is lively and imaginative entertainment, its international cast featuring Kristian Schmid, an Australian 18-year-old soap star who, Nickelodeon insists, has become the Luke Perry of London.

  36. Tom Hanks (1993/02/28/0593079) He bears little resemblance to the Tom Hanks of “Big,” just as the role bears little resemblance to the light comedy he specializes in.

  43. Alain Marcel (1993/03/10/0595190) First, it used a slightly adapted version of Tony Walton’s set from the 1987 revival at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, with stage direction (by the Alain Marcel of Berlin, Helmut Baumann, who runs the Theater des Westens) that stuck closely to the New York version.

  50. Jerry Lewis (1993/03/24/0597754) For himself, Mr. Lang leaves his options open, not precluding a run for the presidency after Mr. Mitterrand retires (a prospect that makes his detractors, those who see him as the Jerry Lewis of politics, cringe at his presumption).

  76. Giacomo Puccini (1993/04/25/0604806) The music recalls Strauss, too, along with Italo Montemezzi, Franz Schreker and the Puccini of “Turandot”; clearly, decadent wallowing was a la mode in the 20’s.

  115. Joyce Oliveira (1993/06/27/0617983) It is impossible, despite his work’s affinities to Dostoyevsky and Hardy and the Joyce of “Dubliners,” to put a date on it: the post-colonial world has its own unique time lines.

  142. Salvador Dalí (1993/07/30/0625014) Considerably more sensational are a startling photograph by the San Francisco artists Aziz and Cucher that shows a male nude whose genitals have been rubbed out through computer wizardry – a kind of off-the-charts idealization – and Alexander Hahn’s “Urbs Turrita,” an installation consisting of three television tubes whose strange mix of old and new images, which include the tubes themselves set in interiors taken from German Romantic paintings, could establish the artist as the Salvador Dali of television.
  143. Nadar (1993/08/01/0625673) There never was a Mathew Brady or a Nadar of the tintype, but the pictures make up for any lack of mastery by their disarming earnestness and the charm that age has lent them.
