John Forbes Nash, Jr. (born June 13, 1928) Nobel Prize Winner in mathematics, has faced a lifelong battle with schizophrenia. He was known as the “Phantom of Fine Hall” at Princeton where his reclusive, ghost like figure could be seen roaming around, leaving messages of his mathematical genus on the boards of empty classrooms. His struggle was well documented in the book "A Beautiful Mind," by Sylvia Nasar which was later made into a movie by the same name.

The Brown Lady -- one of the most famous ghost pictures ever taken. The story goes that this is the ghost of Lady Dorothy Townsend who lived in Raynham Hall Mansion in Norfolk, England in the 1700's. It is said that even though she is listed as having been buried in 1725 many people think that her death and funeral were faked. Instead, the Lady was locked away in a remote part of the house until she passed away some years later. Ever since then she is thought to be haunting Raynham Hall.
