Notably: Who doesn’t miss red-capped Jacques Cousteau? The oceanographer and Capt. Nemo of the 20th century whose genius including seizing on television as a powerful medium to spread his gospel was born on this day in 1910 in St. André-de-Cubzac, a tiny commune in the Gironde, which explains his rebellious streak. He produced some 80 documentaries of his undersea explorations and won three Oscars , one of them for the documentary made of The Silent World, his first book, a sort of Silent Spring of the seas, which had sold more than five million copies in 22 languages, according to his New York Times obituary. Besides that, the obituary notes, “Mr. Cousteau’s reputation rests on an achievement of unassailable importance: He was the co-inventor and principal developer of the Aqua-lung, better known by the acronym ”scuba,” for self-contained underwater breathing apparatus.” The obituary notes: “Mr. Cousteau’s other accomplishments resist pigeonholing. His triumphs were essentially triumphs of character. To every task, he brought relentless energy, unquenchable curiosity, unshakable faith in himself, irresistible charm and the ability to get others to share his enthusiasms. The motto of his ship the Calypso in its glory days in the 1950’s was his lifelong credo: ”Il faut aller voir.” (”We must go and see for ourselves.”)” He died in 1997.
