Guest Puzzle March 2018  "Revolutionary" by Arthur Schless

Instructions: Guess the words defined by the cryptic clues (answers vary in length from three to twelve letters; ten are capitalized, one is an abbreviation, one an acronym, and one a 2-word phrase) then enter them in the grid one after another in the same order as their clues, starting in the upper left corner. Across words that don't end at the right continue on the next row, and down words that don't end at the bottom continue in the next column. Eight across words and eight down words won't fit in the grid unless one of their letters is removed. Those sixteen letters, taken in order as they occur in across and down words spell the name of a person related to the title and the mystery words. If you are having trouble printing these puzzles, you can download an Adobe Acrobat version of the puzzle and grid. [Want to see some hints?]
