Melvil Dewey, creator of the Dewey Decimal System of library classification. This advocate of spelling reform changed his name from Melville to Melvil to avoid unnecessary letters.
Once again for you librarians in the back, the creator of the Dewey Decimal System was totally hot and didn’t take crap from silent letters.
