William F. Ludwig - founder and president of the Ludwig Drum Company. He invented a number of items that essentially created the modern drum set as it's known today, and by extension helped elevate percussion as a profession.
I would put it on St. Paul Ave. at Damen, where the old Ludwig factory still stands (now loft condos).
Mel Torme and Amelia Earhart, in front of Hyde Park High School. There's already a sign there for HP alum Herb Kent, why not these two?
