Famous Pipe Smokers

Today's famous pipe smokers was one of the most famous pipe smokers of all time.

He was also famous for having some badass crazy-hair.

Oh, and he may have been the greatest scientific mind of the 20th century blah blah blah...

Albert Einstein is pretty much inseparable from pipe smoking as one of its archetypes, in a way shared by very few.  His favorite tobacco was called Revelation, which was a relatively inexpensive mishmash of virginia, latakia, perique and some fruity flavoring.  It was discontinued for many years but about a decade ago started being produced again, largely on nothing more than the weight of the fact that it was Einstein's preferred tobacco.  Unlike most other people in the "really famous pipe-smoker" category, Einstein wasn't famous for any single particular type of pipe associated to him (like MacArthur with his ridiculous super-tall corncob).

Einstein attributed at least some of his intellectual genius to his pipe-smoking, famously saying that “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgement in all human affairs.”  You can't argue with that!

Albert Einstein helped shaped the modern world. And Albert Einstein was definitely a Pipe Smoker.
