Paris is as famous for the People who have passed through as it is for its sites and monuments. The people passing through Paris have been voyages geographically, like Charles Lindbergh, Duke Ellington, Thomas Jefferson and Ernest Hemingway. Other famous Parisiens have passed through only in time, like Pierre Curie, the discoverer of pizo-electricity, born here. Marie Curie, discoverer of radium, is also considered a Parisienne, although she was actually born in Warsaw.
