They Don’t Make ‘Em Like This Anymore! 5 Deceased People You Just Can’t Find Today

There has been a lot of controversy about the Millennial generation’s effect on society, but one thing that is indisputable is the fact that older generations had one thing that millennials do not: people born before the 1980’s. Here’s a list of people you might have missed out on due to their demise.


  1. James Hargreaves


Here is one gent you won’t be bumping into at Leo’s. When James “Jim” Hargraves wasn’t inventing the spinning jenny and getting up to all sorts of high-paced escapades, James was meeting his end in 1778, way before you ever had a chance to clap your eyes on him.


  1. Enoch Poor


You won’t find ole Enoch “Minor Revolutionary War Figure” Poor in your Soul Cycle class or making a copy at Lau. This goofy fella would probably be too busy contributing in a small way to the Revolutionary Army or being long dead of typhus.


  1. Catherine the Great


Empress Catie here won’t be blowing up your Instagram feed with avocado toast pics anytime soon. Catie was a true patron of the arts and whether selfie culture or a 1796 stroke killed her is a question we may never know the answer to.


  1. Czeslaw Milosz


Here’s one guy you’ll have a tough time getting a hold of. Czeslaw was one cool cat, and notorious for his occasional introverted tendencies. Between his anti-social behavior and his status as a deceased person, it’s safe to say that he won’t be easy to get on the phone.


  1. Herbert Hoover


There’s nothing like a smile from Herbie Hoover to brighten your day, but if you noticed he hasn’t been around much recently you would be right. After his presidency Herb backed out of the spotlight, a move which his death in 1964 did not do much to help.
