Biographies in the lexicon include the likes of Split-born biologist and Richard Lounsbery award-winner Miroslav Radman, who made an impact in France, painters Charles Bilich, Jozo Kljaković and Juraj Plančić, the Lukšić family from Brač, who are one of Latin America’s wealthiest families, succesful US physicist Marin Soljačić, and sportsmen Joe Šimunić and Joe Sakić.
