You may find this thread useful on the topic of famous homeschoolers.

Homeschool law is left up to the individual states, so homeschooling became legal at different dates depending on which state you're talking about. You may be able to find info on the history of homeschooling in Illinois at one or more of the IL groups pages:
http://www.home-school.com/groups/IL.html

Or perhaps HSLDA's site.

The homeschool Legal Defense website may have some info that would help. I'm not sure of the link, but you could try a search. If you can't find it, let me know and I think my husband might have it on his computer.

Not sure if you're still needing any info.
Remember the sitcom "Third Rock from the Sun"? I didn't actually watch it but, I did see an interview with one of the stars. I'm not sure what her name is but she was the leading female (supposed to be an alien), tall, long sandy-blonde hair. Anyway she did say that she had been hs-d all the way through- I'm pretty sure. She also shared that she hadn't even watched TV until somewhere in her twenties. Maybe someone can recall her name. Not Jane Curtin.
