Ben Franklin

Yesterday I found out Ben Franklin founded the University of Pennsylvania, one of the world's best universities. Now, if you had founded Yale or Dartmouth or U. Chicago, that's probably what you'd be remembered for. Your tombstone would say, "Founder of Dartmouth".

But I recently read a biography of Ben Franklin that did not have space to mention that he founded the University of Pennsylvania.
