Relating to post 470 – The Art of Memory, I chose Hadrian as my final historical figure to add to my memory list as I transition to an entirely different approach to my bizarre hobby.

Whereas before, I had decided to include no one who had been born after my own birth year (since they would be considered my contemporaries, not historical personalities), I will now flip flop that idea to include on my list, as well, persons who are alive or only recently deceased. Nor will they be ordered based on birth date, but, rather, in a manner that makes the most sense in terms of memorization.
