Reaganagram Reprise


John Henrick


As the curtain rises on the denouement of the Reagan years, it seems appropriate to renew the search for apposite transposals of the President's name. In the May 1984 issue of Word Ways, the term Reaganagram was introduced by Mike Morton and A. Ross Eckler in reference to interesting permutations of the eighteen letter in RONALD WILSON REAGAN, or alphabetically arranged, AAADEGILLNNNOORRSW. To the hundreds of examples of computer-generated scramblings contained in their article, the human touch was added in the August 1984 issue through various contributions from readers.
