Aw, man! I had a clever series of IQs about James I set up, too. Congratulations, SCAdian! And good choice, Prof. Pepperwinkle! (I didn't know that "Jan" was a nickname for Vermeer; more ignorance fought.)

I had wondered where you went, Elendil's Heir. Welcome back!

Now, on to K!

I first heard of him as Jan, and it was actually a few decades before I realised that wasn't his real name.

I wouldn't say balding, but I had a distinctly receding hairline, was an African leader and a strong advocate of pan-Africanism, and met with Kennedy at least once, in 1961. I am Kwame Nkrumah, the first Prime Minister and President of Ghana.
(Don't know the other two.)

Congratulations, Elendil’s Heir! (I would never have gotten that; I thought it was Kemal Ataturk.)

Previous IQs

IQ1: Are you an Austrian painter, whose work, such as The Kiss, is notable for a frank eroticism? Correct, Gustav Klimt; in fact, it was your answer to a previous IQ that put me in mind of this artist.

IQ2: Are you a Merry Prankster? Ken Kesey, a companion of Jack Kerouac...though now I realize, it, either would have been correct.

IQ3: Are you the founder of the modern, secular republic of Turkey? Correct, Kemal Ataturk.

On to L:

IQ1: Are you an actress whose most famous character lent her name to high-ranking FBI official Mark Felt?

IQ2: Are you a two-sport American Olympian who ran the 100m hurdles in the 2012 Beijing Olympics, then was part of the U.S. bobsledding team in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics?

IQ3: Were you an accomplished actor who became typecast after playing an obnoxious, hypocritical Army surgeon in a long-running sitcom?

I think I know who you were thinking of, Prof P, but I'd have to guess that the best known resident of Coconino County is now Jim Walmsley, the ultramarathoner whose training group is nicknamed "the Coconino Cowboys".

And Ignatz, too. But how many people now recognize Krazy Kat now? Probably as many who recognize Jim Walmsley. I’d guess, anyhoo.
