Attaturk! Way to go! Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was, of course, the Father of Modern Turkey. He changed the alphabet to Latin from Arabic letters; copied the Swiss civil code, founded the secular state, dumped the Arabic calendar for the Western version, made Sunday a holiday, gave women the right to vote. A revolutionary, in other words.

He also forbade the fez.

He looks quite fatherly here, like a cross between LBJ and Karl Malden.
