Patsy Cline Plane Crash - 1963 Patsy Cline, one of the most influential female singers in country music history, was tragically killed in an airplane crash in Camden, TN on March 5, 1963. She was 30 years old. Her last performance had occurred two days earlier in Kansas City, KS at a benefit for the family of a popular radio deejay who had died in an automobile mishap in January. Cline's plane was headed towards Nashville, TN. After a stopover in Dyersburg, TN, the plane, a small Piper Comanche, took off for the final leg of the journey at 6:07 p.m. It vanished about 15 minutes later. Three other performers--Cowboy Copas, Hankshaw Hawkins, and Randy Hughes (the pilot)--also perished. The airplane encountered severe storm conditions which almost certainly contributed to the crash. It was later learned that Hughes was not trained for instrument flying and was likely trying to make an emergency landing on a nearby highway. Instead the plane crashed nose-first into a remote forested area. The wreckage was discovered by a Cline fan early the next morning who had searched for it after hearing radio reports that Cline's plane had likely gone down. The crash site has changed very little in the five decades since Cline's untimely death. According to friends, Cline sensed her impending doom, and made comments as early as September 1962 that she didn't expect to live much longer. Shortly before her death, Cline gave away treasured personal belongings and hastily wrote her will.

Do You Recognize This Couple This is a photo (circa 2010) of Richard Bull and Katherine MacGregor who played Nels and Harriet Oleson on the classic family western series Little House on the Prairie. Nels was the gentle, good-natured, lovable proprietor of Walnut Grove's mercantile. Harriet...not so much. (...And I won't even discuss how their two kids behaved!) Both Bull and MacGregor are well into their eighties now.

Polio Vaccine Campaign 1954 From 1916 through 1952 the United States and Canada experienced horrible outbreaks of polio every few years. At one point, one out of every 5000 children was diagnosed with the dreaded disease. Polio is a virus which can be contracted through contacting bodily fluids from someone already infected. Early symptoms might include headaches and a runny nose. However, once the virus moves to the central nervous system, it can cause paralysis and even death. Sneezing and coughing accelerate the spread of polio. Therefore there was justifiable panic in communities when outbreaks occurred. Public gathering places would be declared off limits. (Swimming pools were typically the first places to be closed.) Municipal parks would be eerily vacant. Researchers later determined, somewhat ironically, that young children were most susceptible to polio because most North American births in the 20th century occurred in the sterile environs of hospitals. These newborns did not naturally come in contact with small amounts of the disease as did their ancestors who were born at home. Accordingly, their immune systems did not develop sufficient resistance to the virus. Researchers Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin worked separately to find a cure. Both believed that by exposing children to minute traces of the virus through immunizations their immune systems would build up a lifetime immunity to polio. Salk favored vaccine containing the dead polio virus while Sabin favored live-virus vaccine. In 1954, two years after the terrible 1952 outbreak, more than 1.83 million children volunteered to be "polio pioneers" and serve as guinea pigs for Salk's virus. As a reward for their bravery, each was given a lollipop, plus a button and certificate acknowledging participation in the program. None of the volunteers contracted polio.

Buth Ruth Final Public Appearance According to a popular myth (perpetuated by New York Yankees fans), Babe Ruth's final appearance at a ballpark was in Yankee Stadium on Babe Ruth Day on June 13, 1948 where the terminally ill Bambino put on the pinstripes one last time and addressed a huge, subdued crowd in a croaky, cancer-ravaged voice. It makes for a fitting end to Babe Ruth's days as a public figure, but it wasn't so. Ruth's final public appearance actually occurred six days later at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis when the lowly Browns hosted the Yankees in a Saturday game. The ailing Ruth failed to create much excitement that day: The paid attendance was under 6,000. Ruth made a short, raspy speech and posed for this photo flanked by kids who had descended from the ballpark's grandstand. Ruth died two months later, on August 16, 1948. He was 53.
