Everyone in Who's Who is invited to compile his or her own entry, so entries can be as long or as short as celebrities wish.
The late romantic novelist Dame Barbara Cartland hogged 222 lines to list her mostly literary achievements.
The entries of the Bristol contingent are comparatively brief and modest.
Bristol-born artist Stephen Cox needs 37 lines to tell his life story, while Bristol-born QC James Collins makes do with only five lines.The 21-line entry of Bristol Old Vic's
Thomas Morris is two lines longer than the 19-line entry of
Pope Benedict XV1 and seven lines longer than the 14-line entry of US President Barack Obama.
The Bristolians and all the others will now remain in Who's Who until they die, when they will be automatically transferred to Who's Who's sister publication,Who Was Who.
The 2013 edition of Who's Who is published by A &C Black at £235.
