Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 4, No. 858.  Monday, 29 November 1993.

Subject:        The Bard is Back?
According to a brief article in PARADE magazine, this year Shakespeare
is the #1 historical figure of greatest interest to users of the
Encyclopedia Britannica's Instant Research Service.  This is the first
time Shakespeare has been #1.  (Runners-up were JFK, Hitler, Mark
Twain, Dickens...)  The article speculates that the film version of
MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING may have something to do with it.
