Shutter Man

I decided to investigate another recent post of the MacGregors, note the following from their May 14 post, Unwind: 
  • Recently, I picked up Unwind by Neal Shusterman.
The name contains a cryptic "kneel Shuter man"!!  And Shuster is an addition to the "Remove a letter Makes a word " pattern-cluster as in remove the "s" and you get shut(er).  Which makes sense when considering todays "Door Open Shut... theme" pattern-cluster.  Note from my previous post:
2000  Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, Austrian architect (b. 1897)
As you can see, the Schyutte is a cryptic "shut door"... and her name  means pearl in origin and synonymous with Megan MacGregor-- so shut the door on Megan
And now note from Trish MacGregor's wiki page:
  • Patricia Janeshutz MacGregor
Her middle name also breaks down into a cryptic "jane(aka Young) shutz".   Note from Neal's wiki page:
And note from my previous post:
  • Vittorio Brambilla (11 November 1937 – 26 May 2001) 
So cutting to the chase:

  •  William "Red" Holzman (August 10, 1920 – November 13, 1998)
He was born on the 222nd day of the year.  

Note this next excerpt from Shusterman's wiki page:

PublisherSimon & Schuster
  • M. Lincoln Schuster (March 2, 1897 – December 20, 1970)
  • Richard Leo "DickSimon (March 6, 1899 – July 29, 1960) 
 And so we now have a "March 2, _, 6/ Even Number Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  So cutting to the chase:
  •  Harry Andrew Blackmun (November 12, 1908 – March 4, 1999) 
Shusterman was born on Harry Blackmun's birthday!!  

Franck Pourcel (11 August 1913 – 12 November 2000)
