Open Thread for SPY-style lists

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Full credit.

I believe most people in my list
Spoiler: show
had a leg or portion of a leg amputated for medical reasons, but in some cases it was the result of injury.

I was browsing this old thread, and it looks like this one never got an explicit answer. I never quite figured it out (or if I did, I've forgotten the answer). Neel?

This one is not very Googleable either. Hints:
Spoiler: show
1. Note that everyone on the list is or was fairly wealthy.
2. Ralph Lauren and Deborah Norville qualify twice.
3. Because of me, our household used to get an item in the mail that each of these people could put on their cars. I may be mistaken, but I think the same can be said for Cannon's household.

Oh, this was too hard, even for this thread. I was hoping Cannon (who was active on these boards back then) would get it.

List #12 solved:
Spoiler: show
Each of these people get free DUKE PARENT bumper stickers in the mail because they had one or more children attend Duke University.
