Haile Selassie was forced into exile in 1936 after Italy invaded in 1935. After the British recaptured Addis Ababa in January 1941, Selassie was reinstated as emperor.

According to the official website of Fairfield House, Selassie was very fond of Bath in England (the location of Fairfield House) and the city honored him in 1954 with the Freedom of the City. Selassie bequeathed the house to the city of Bath after his return to his homeland.

Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section below.

    How I love Jeopardy, let me count the ways!
    Today I was surprised to see Mr. Harold Leff as a contestant and wonder if he is the same gentleman I remember from my days at MetLife!

    • Hi, Norma!

      I’ve even asked around with some of Harold’s fellow contestants and they haven’t been able to keep in touch with him since the episode taped, unfortunately, so I haven’t been able to answer your question! I’m sorry.

  3. Yes, I worked at MetLife as an actuary from 1969-1999
