From Wikipedia’s entry on Armand Hammer:

In fact, according to multiple biographers, Hammer was named after the “Arm and Hammer” symbol of the Socialist Labor Party (SLP), in which his father, a committed socialist, had a leadership role at one time.

david brother’s reaction:

people shouldn’t hate their children.

In general, I just love that there was someone honest-to-god named Armand Hammer. The fact that he may have been a Soviet agent just makes it even better. david’s right: He should have been a supervillain.
