Mark Twain with pipe (images/clemens.jpg)

include Samuel Clemens, aka Mark Twain

This is a list of prominent people (in fields other than tobacco production or sales) who smoke(d) a pipe for enjoyment. This characterization is based on the person smoking a pipe for a long enough period in their lives that others noted their pipe-smoking or photographed them smoking a pipe. Actors who smoked pipes for roles are not included, unless they also smoked them privately.

If you have any names you think ought to be added to this list (or removed) , please contact me at
