True Fame Endures, Study Finds
Date:3/28/2013

THURSDAY, March 28 (HealthDay News) -- Lasting fame rarely happens overnight, but once a person becomes truly famous they are likely to stay that way for a very long time, a new study finds.

Researchers analyzed the names mentioned in English-language newspapers over several decades, and found that people who become truly famous stay famous for decades. This is true in a wide range of fields, including sports, politics and entertainment, they found.

In general, truly famous people follow career-like patterns of rising to fame, remaining well-known and then gradually fading from the scene, the researchers noted in a news release from the American Sociological Association.

"We can all think of examples of both types, fleeting and long-term fame. [Singer-songwriter] Leonard Cohen is still well known today, over 40 years after he first became famous," said study co-leader Arnout van de Rijt, an assistant professor in the sociology department at Stony Brook University.

"But Chesley ['Sully'] Sullenberger, the pilot who received instant fame after safely landing a disabled plane on the Hudson [River in New York City], is a name that will likely be forgotten pretty quickly," he said in the news release.

"What we have shown is that Leonard Cohen is the rule and Chesley Sullenberger t
