    Howard Hughes

    I am writing an essay on Howard Hughes and I want to say that nobody would remember him now if he was just a businessman. Is this sentence correct?

    Nobody would know today who Howard Hughes was, if he had not been a famous pilot, movie producer and a mentally-ill genius.


    Thank you for your help in advance!

    Re: Howard Hughes

    It looks OK to me, though I'd omit the comma.

    ...He means the first comma, not the second one.
