How about a sculptor with Marble Carver?

92. This Russian-American sculptor first gained widespread attention in the 1940s when she exhibited a found shoeshine box at the Museum of Modern Art.
LOUISE NEVELSON?

28. This American tennis player won 18 Grand Slam championships between 1936 and 1940.
ALICE MARBLE
2. Even members of Congress from the segregated South voted in favor of funding a national monument to this man – the first such monument honoring an African American.
GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER
I looked the sculptor up, and she worked with wood, so that must be
92. LOUISE NEVELSON = 67. Anthony WOOD + 2. George Washington CARVER

Yes, when no one has answered it (or answered it correctly) after a few pages/consolidations.

63. During the Open Era, he was the youngest player to achieve a career Grand Slam and the first to achieve the Surface Slam.
RAFAEL NADAL
Nadal has won the French Open 14 times (!) so 63. RAFAEL NADAL = 34. Cassius CLAY + 23. Jamie COURT

One of John Nash's best-known structures is the Marble Arch in London. So, that would match with Alice Marble and someone named Arch.

So others have pointed out Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and the Marble Arch of John Nash.

That leaves us with Pat Day, Theresa May (who met with then-President Trump first), and Emma Madame Bovary. I don't see any connection with May Day and Madame Bovary. It would seem to fit better with Lenin, but his fit with petit bourgeosie seems too good. I don't think there's any Wobblies here. Anyone see a connection?

I've never read Madame Bovary, but from an article in The Guardian:
The outward events of Emma Bovary's life are a petit bourgeois version of the doom of Anna Karenina
There are lots of other sources that mention the phrase in connection with the novel or the character.

I'm sorry, Frank. I can't resist inserting some politics.

Choose one: Should we thank Frank: (a) fulsomely, or (b) effusively? Vote below. --Bob

Frank, I hope you do another soon. Now that I see how it works and that I need to write my own list better maybe I'll get more. It was not as daunting as I had thought.
