Famous Immigrants
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Millions of immigrants have come to this country. They have brought many things, including new ideas. There are some famous people that lived here that you might not even know were immigrants. These people moved to the United States for different reasons. No matter what the reason was for moving here, they all helped to change this country and the world around them.
 
2     Arnold Schwarzenegger was born in Austria in 1947. He lived there until early adulthood when he came to this country. When he was younger, Schwarzenegger was a bodybuilder. He won the title of Mr. Olympia seven times. In 2003, he announced he was running for the office of governor of California. He ran as a Republican. He won the election. In 2006, he was reelected to the office.
 
3     Bob Hope was born in 1903. His given name when he was born was Leslie. He was born in England. Hope was an actor both on the radio and in movies. His first full-length movie was The Big Broadcast of 1938. He would go on to star in more than fifty movies.
 
4     Hope is also well known for what he did for the men and women in the military. In 1941, Hope went to California and did a radio show for the airmen there. During World War II, almost all of his weekly radio shows were broadcast from military installations.
 
5     The man who is credited with inventing the crossword puzzle came to this country from England. His name was Arthur Wynne. In 1913, he was asked to invent a new puzzle for the newspaper he was working for. He based his game on another game called magic squares.
