Signatures of History [Duplicate]

This undated handout image provided by the National Archives shows Patent #5,255,452, submitted by Michael Jackson for "Method and means for creating anti-gravity illusion," October 26, 1993. This patent for a shoe which allows the "wearer to lean forwardly beyond his center of gravity" was created by Jackson and two other designers, so he could perform live on stage a signature move that he had previously done with wires in his "Smooth Criminal" music video. Curators at the National Archives have culled their collection in search of some of the great signatures of history. A special exhibit opening Friday includes the personal marks of figures that include Thomas Jefferson, Frank Sinatra, Jackie Robinson, Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein, along with important documents from history.
