    Famous folks from Cambridge?

    What do you think of our list of celebrities who grew up or spent some time in Cambridge? 

    Does someone not deserve to be on this list because they weren't around long enough? Did we not include enough people who went to Harvard or MIT? 

    Did we forget anyone?

    How about Joyce Chen?  Even though she was from China, she made Cambridge her home and had three restaurants here.

    How about Donna Barrasso who became a sex symbol ?

    How about author Alice HOffman?  Not only has she written more than 25 books, including Practical Magic and Aquamarine (both made into films) but she also donated money to Mount Auburn Hospital to form the Hoffman Breast Center where women can receive needed services and treatment.  No woman is turned away.  Alice herself is a breast cancer survivor and was treated at Mount Auburn.  She deserves recognition over some you mentioned.  hello Dane Cook????

    His name is Edward ESTLIN Cummings, not Enslin.
    Also, it's not necessary to lowercase his name. That was something his publisher made up.

    Roxbury and South Boston are neighborhoods of Boston. If they are considered to be "other towns", shouldn't JP, North End, Beacon Hill, etc. all be included?

    Re: Famous folks from Cambridge?

    Thanks for all the suggestions! We've added Tip O'NeillMax Casella, and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

    We'll keep looking into these other folks mentiond here and will add them after they've been verified.

    Re: e.e. cummings-- The discussion on whether or not to uppercase his name spelling is very compelling and has inspired several debates. (I think even he wasn't consistent in how he portrayed his name) Either way, we've stuck with how our stylebook says we should capitalize his name.

    Re: farnsquare-- Those cities are definitely on the list of towns we'd like to add. It all depends on whether there's enough famous folks to justify it. But we're looking into them (eventually)!
