Ghostwriter's Haunts

I was blown away by the stats that try to show how many of the best sellers are ghostwritten. I won't quote numbers here, because there is no real way to tell, since the whole point of ghostwriting for the rich and famous is to stay anonymous.

Here’s my question to the authors out there: Are there works you know of with credit given to someone famous for writing a book that was actually written by a ghostwriter? I’m not talking about Sarah Palin, Bill & Hillary Clinton. I'm curious about someone like Winston Churchill or Hemingway.
