The Mystery person was:

Edwin Powell Hubble
( 20. November 1889 in Marshfield, Missouri; † 28. September 1953 in San Marino, California)

Mr. Edwin Powell Hubble was a famous Us American Astronomer.
Hubble studied Physics and astronomies in Chicago and graduated in 1910 with a Bachelor of Science. After he left the USA to make his Master in Law in Oxford. After this he returned to the US.
He profoundly changed the understanding of the universe by confirming the existence of galaxies which were different than our own. Today we know it as “The Milky Way”. He also kept in mind, the idea that the degree of “Doppler shift” which means, specifically “redshift” observed in the light spectra from other galaxies increased in proportion to a particular galaxy’s distance from Earth. This relationship became known as the Hubble’s law. The Doppler shift interpretation of the observed redshift had been proposed earlier by Vesto Slipher, whose data Hubble used to create his own Law.

After Hubble survived a Heart attack he died September 28, 1953, in San Marino, California at the age of 63, because of a stroke. There was no official Funeral
