Oddity
    (April 4, 1927-July 24, 2016)
    Born in North Carolina
    Birth name was Chris Costner
    Diagnosed with multiple personality disorder
    Inspired the film 'The Three Faces of Eve' (1957)
    Co-wrote the memoirs 'I'm Eve' (1977) and 'A Mind of My Own' (1989)
    Despite what 'Eve' implied, she had over 20 personalities, not just three.
    Also, while the movie implied she had been cured, her personalities were not successfully integrated until 1974.
    She attempted suicide by overdosing on sleeping pills, but was found and rescued by her fourteen-year-old son.
    She said, 'It took me a year to realize that the personalities were not coming back, and that if I were going to do anything with my life, I had to do it myself. I had to adjust to being one person, and that was not easy.'
    Her sister Becky became distant from her for several years because she liked one of the alternate personalities and was upset by its disappearance.
    She inspired the Siouxsie and the Banshees songs 'Christine' and 'Eve White/Eve Black.'
    She successfully sued 20th Century Fox for the movie rights to the post-'Eve' events of her life (1989).
    She launched a career as a mental health advocate, noting 'I think I can be an example to other people that they can get help and have a better quality of life.'
    She received the Clifford W. Beers Award from the National Mental Health Association as the person who had done the most to dispel the stigma of mental illness (1982).
    She said, 'I know who I am now. I like who I am. I live a lot and I love life.'
