What is a good person to do my history fair project on? It has to be an individual of chicago history.?

The 2008-2009 theme is: “Individual in Chicago/Illinois History: Actions, Legacies” Consider: Do individuals make a difference in history? Do only famous people make a difference? How do unknown people play a part in history? Who are the important individuals in your life? Who has made a difference / impacted you? Look at your own life: What was an experience that had a big effect on your life? How do you think you could make a difference in the world? If you could change something, create, invent what would it be? Why? Once you know that, list three things you’d need to do to achieve it and who might help you or oppose you. I've been thinking about it and I would like it to be about someone dealing with something political/law/legal a community matter or something with a hospital here in Chicago. it can't be very recent. a person and the event, i mean. think about 30 years back.

I don't think that the only people in history to make an impact are good people. Maybe you should go against the grain and talk about a notorious person in Chicago history. That'd be cool. Al Capone- mafia see this link for more information on him.
