Stirnemann, Erich

The late Erich Stirnemann spent five weeks reading a one-volume encyclopedia from morning to night. For the rest of his life, despite a total lack of higher schooling, there was no limit to his pursuit of learning. All his income was from hard labor - although, at the age of 60, he could easily lift 400 pounds. His lifelong hobby was poetry, culminating in a 5,000-line translation of the Srimad Bhagavad Gita from the Sanskrit, merely for his own amusement.
