1903 World Series Photo One of my favorite sports photos. It was taken at Boston's Huntington Avenue Base Ball Grounds sometime during the 1903 World Series. Some captions claim it was taken before the first game. Other captions claim it was taken after the seventh game. Notice the fans standing behind ropes in the outfield. This was a common practise in those days to squeeze more paying customers into sold out games. Special ground rules had to be made to deal with batted balls that flew or rolled into the crowd.

Jayne Mansfield Visits Washington Here's a one-minute newsreel of a major story...Jayne Mansfield visits Washington, D.C.! This is the kind of fluff piece that used to pass for news during the heyday of cinema newsreels.

Biophone used in Emergency TV show The Biophone was a radio system seen in the TV series Emergency! The Biophone was used by field paramedics, usually firefighters or ambulance attendants. The phone was capable of broadcasting voice and EKGs to a base unit, usually a hospital so they could speak to doctors supervising them but I always preferred it when the nurse played by Julie London answered and handled the call. The biophone on the right is the same one used in the TV show and is now on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

Curious Death of President Harding 1923 On the evening of August 2, 1923, Warren G. Harding, the 29th president of the United States, died suddenly in a room at the Palace Hotel in San Francsico. He was 57 years old. Harding was in the midst of a west coast trip, but he had taken ill as his train rolled through Seattle. Almost immediately, the rumors surrounding his passing began. There was no official cause of Harding's death. Some sources claim it was a fatal case of food poisoning; others claim it was a heart attack or a stroke. Despite his wife and his nurses being frequently in and out of the room, the time of Harding's death could not be pinned down any more specifically than between 7 and 7:30 p.m. Florence Harding had her husband's body embalmed and ready for a funeral train back to Washington within an hour of the president's death, thus no autopsy could be performed. (California had no mandatory autopsy laws at the time.) Although Harding was a perfect candidate for poor health--he was a heavy smoker and drinker, plagued by stress, who rarely exercised--there are those who think Mrs. Harding had something to do with her husband's demise. According to the conspiracy theorists, Mrs. Harding either wanted to spare Warrren G. the shame of the scandals about his administration that were soon to surface--or she took revenge over her hubby's numerous extra-marital trysts. Those who don't think anything was amiss point to Harding's declining health at the hands of a quack homeopathic physician and Harding's generally poor living habits. Maybe Harding himself sensed the end was near: Before leaving for the west coast, Harding had written a new will. He had also curiously sold the Marion (OH) Star, his hometown newspaper, which he had bought with the intent of running it after he retired from politics.

The Israelites-Desmond Dekker Desmond Dekker (July 16, 1941 May 25, 2006) was a Jamaican ska and reggae singer and songwriter. Together with his backing group, The Aces (consisting of Wilson James and Easton Barrington Howard), he had one of the first international Jamaican hits with "Israelites". Other hits include "007 (Shanty Town)" (1967) and "It Miek" (1969). Before the ascent of Bob Marley, Dekker was one of the most popular musicians within Jamaica, and one of the best-known musicians outside it. n 1968 Dekker's "Israelites" was released, appearing on both the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Charts, and eventually topping the latter and (in June, 1969) peaking in the Top Ten of the former. He was the first Jamaican performer to enter U.S. market with pure Jamaican music, though he never repeated the feat.

Alls Fair - Forgotten Sitcom According to the critics, All's Fair, a Norman Lear sitcom, was the can't-miss new offering for the 1976-77 TV season. Nevertheless, it missed. Set in Washington, D.C., All's Fair centered around a 49-year-old conservative newspaper columnist Richard Barrington (Richard Crenna) and his romance with a 23-year-old liberal photographer Charlotte Drake (Bernadette Peters). With so many differences between Barrington and Drake, the main characters spent a great deal of time shouting at one another (leading one critic to call it a "high-decibel comedy"). All's Fair premiered on CBS on September 20, 1976 and got generally favorable reviews. Peters was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role. The public never took a liking to All's Fair, though. It was off the air by the end of April 1977 after just 24 episodes.
