Thomas Plumb was an English first-class cricketer. Plumb played first-class cricket for several teams between 1866–79, was considered by some to be the finest wicket-keeper of his time. Plumb, born at Aylesbury, was considered the finest wicket-keeper of his time, with W. G. Grace describing him as ‘about the best wicket-keeper of his time.’ He was considered by others to have been the equal of Ted Pooley and George Pinder. Plumb was never attached to one of the major county teams of the time, playing for Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire second-class counties, he made his debut in first-class cricket for the North in the North v South fixture of 1866. Between 1866 and 1879, he played first-class cricket for no less than eight teams, including for the Players in the 1869 Gentlemen v Players fixture, he appeared for All-England teams, including the United England Eleven and the All England Eleven. Making 26 first-class appearances, Plumb scored 474 runs at an average of 12.81, with a high score of 67.
Behind the stumps, he made 15 stumpings. Outside of cricket he was a publican. In his years he lived under poor circumstances owing to the misfortune of not belonging to a major county during his career, he lived out his final years in a workhouse in Northampton, dying there in March 1905.

Bill Andriette is an American journalist and pro-pedophile activist. Andriette was the Art Director for the LGBT periodical Baltimore Outloud, was the Features Editor of The Guide, a gay travel and entertainment magazine published in Boston; as of 1996, he was the spokesman of the North American Man/Boy Love Association. In an interview in The Boston Phoenix in 1996, Andriette said, "I realized I was gay when I was 12." He joined NAMBLA when he was 15 years old, by the age of 17 he was a member of the Steering Committee. For six years he was the editor of the NAMBLA Bulletin, he expressed differences with some earlier NAMBLA directors' views regarding legalization of what is now considered to be statutory rape, finding room for compromise with government and societal concerns. He expressed frustration that the LGBT rights movement had ostracized NAMBLA, because he regarded the moral condemnation of pedophiles as a "reactionary ideology which the gay movement has adopted to burnish its own particular identity category."During the 1993 International Lesbian and Gay Association controversy, he defended NAMBLA's membership in ILGA, to a greater extent NAMBLA's place in the gay rights movement, by claiming that "'the main tradition' of homosexuality" is consistent with supporting the abolition of laws prohibiting statutory rape.
He appeared in the 1994 documentary about NAMBLA, Chicken Hawk: Men Who Love Boys, in which described how his work with NAMBLA provided an outlet for his sexual attraction to prepubescent young boys below the age of consent. In 2008, he was a runner up for a Sex Positive Journalism Award for an article which appeared in The Guide: "Tipping Point for Gay Sex?" "Are You a Child Pornographer?". Playboy Magazine: 56. 1991.
