62. Works by this American historian included biographies of an American President, an American general, a British prime minister, the “Sage of Baltimore,” and two prominent industrial dynasties – one American and one German.

The Sage of Baltimore was HL Mencken.

Only biography I can think of is by WILLIAM MANCHESTER.

Kennedy, Churchhill, Rockefellers.

Some of the later comments may already have corrected these, but let's keep it simple.

Of the ones with a question mark, two are correct.



3. Shortly after this group broke up, the lead guitarist’s wife caught him in bed with the drummer’s wife, which another member of the group called “virtual incest.”.
FLEETWOOD MAC?
]
This is one of the wrong ones. The correct answer is The Beatles. George was caught with Ringo's wife by Pattie Harrison. John Lennon made the "virtual incest" remark.

2. In a re-election bid, this President won against a man who was the then-current holder of the same elected office that he (the President) had previously held. Got that?
GROVER CLEVELAND? FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT?


20. His #10 has been retired by the team that he led to what remain – after nearly half a century – their only two NBA championships.
ELGIN BAYLOR?
2 would have to be FDR, since Cleveland wasn't running for re-election when he won his second term in office.

20. Baylor never won an NBA title. The Lakers won their first title in the season in which he retired mid-season. This is Walt Frazier of the Knicks.
