Mile-High City

Returning again to yesterdays post and to the Denver city wiki page, note this excerpt: 
  • Denver is nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5280 feet or 1609.3 meters) above sea level, making it the highest major city in the United States.[9] 
That "mile" crops up... along with "pyle" (see yesterdays post), is meaningful.  If you key "miles" into this blogs search box you'll discover that it's a cryptic reference to "glacial periods".  

On the Denver wiki page is a "mile" long list of notable persons.  The list is divided off into sections according to their claim to fame ie.  It's too vast to consider investigating all, so I narrowed my search to the first and last two individuals listed in each section who also have their date of birth/death recorded on their wiki page info, that I've included in the list below:

Academia:
  • Harold Melvin Agnew (March 28, 1921 – September 29, 2013)

  • James Quinn Wilson (May 27, 1931 – March 2, 2012)
