JMB has to be the most important gun designer in history. Colt, Winchester and others were very important, but this guy's body of work is just astounding.

One interesting fun fact I read is that JMB's favorite design he did, the one he thought was the pinnacle of his efforts, was the Browning Auto 5 shotgun. That is what he is holding in the picture in your post. My Dad had two of them. They are magnificent guns. It was produced for 100 years, 1898 to 1998. It was used by the US military from 1905-1975 and it was also used by the SAS in Malaysia. That design doesn't get talked about much.
