Guest Dies During TV Talk Show On June 5, 1971, Jerome Irving Rodale (pictured here) was a guest on Dick Cavett's prime time talk show. Rodale, a pioneer in organic foods and a longevity guru, had stated he intended to live to be 100 years old. When Cavett began interviewing his next guest (political journalist Pete Hammill), Rodale made a snoring-like sound and slumped over. Cavett thought Rodale had fallen asleep. 'Are we boring you, Mr. Rodale?' asked Cavett. Nope. The 72-year-old Rodale had succumbed to a fatal heart attack. The show was never aired.

The Fridge William Perry Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman William “The Refrigerator” Perry remains hospitalized in South Carolina. Aiken Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Melissa Summer said Wednesday that Perry is in serious condition. The 46-year-old Perry has been hospitalized to deal with complications from Guillain-Barre (gee-LAN’ bah-RAY’) Syndrome, a chronic inflammation disorder of the peripheral nerves. Perry’s nephew, Purnell Perry, said Tuesday that his uncle was admitted more than a week ago but was expected to recover. A man who answered the phone Wednesday at Purnell Perry’s home in Aiken said he couldn’t comment on the football player’s hospitalization. The 300-pound plus defensive tackle played for the Bears’ 1985 Super Bowl team, and helped lead Clemson to the 1981 national championship.

Neville Chamberlain - Peace In Our Time One of history's most infamous photographs: It was taken on September 30, 1938 at England's Heston Aerodrome. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain has returned from a meeting with Adolf Hitler in Munich. As part of Chamberlain's appeasement policy to avert war, Chamberlain (and his French counterpart Edouard Daladier) had just agreed to Hitler's demand that the Sudetenland and Czechoslovakia be annexed into the German reich. Chamberlain is shown holding the document signed by Hitler that Chamberlain insisted would guarantee 'peace in our time.'

Laurel and Hardy - The Music Box The comedy team of Laurel & Hardy made dozens of short comedies in both the silent and sound eras of film. (Their voices so perfectly matched their characters that the transition to sound movies was no problem at all.) Many L&H fans declare the Oscar-winning 1932 featurette The Music Box to be their best short film. The plot is simple: L&H go into the cartage business and have to deliver a piano to an address located atop a large flight of stairs. The normal accidents, complications and catastrophes arise. The menacing concrete staircase still exists as a public walkway and is something of a tourist attraction. (It's located on Vendrome Street in Los Angeles.) A historic plaque was added to the stairs in 1993. A tall sign identifying 'Music Box Stairs' points L&H fans to the location.

Olympic Sprinter Wilma Rudolph Twenty-year-old American sprinter Wilma Rudolph won three gold medals at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Her championships came in the women's 100 metres, 200 metres, and 4 x 100 relay. Rudolph had also been a member of the 1956 U.S. Olympic team in Melbourne as a 16-year-old. Remarkably, Rudolph was a sickly child who had to walk with the assistance of leg braces. Another member of the 1960 U.S. Olympic team was admittedly smitten by Rudolph: an 18-year-old boxer from Louisville named Cassius Clay. Clay/Ali and Rudolph became friends and often appeared at charity fund-raisers together for many years afterwards. Rudolph only lived to be 54, dying of brain cancer in 1994.

Last Female WWI veteran dies Florence Patterson Green never saw the front line. Her war was spent serving food, not dodging bullets. But Green, who died on February 4, 2012, aged 110, was the last known surviving veteran of World War I. She was serving with the Women's Royal Air Force as a waitress at an air base in eastern England when the guns fell silent on November 11, 1918. It was not until 2010 that she was officially recognized as a veteran after a researcher found her service record in Britain's National Archives. Green died Saturday at the Briar House Care Home in King's Lynn, eastern England, two weeks before her 111th birthday, the home said. Retired Air Vice-Marshal Peter Dye, director-general of the RAF Museum, said it was fitting that the last survivor of the first global war was someone who had served on the home front. "In a way, that the last veteran should be a lady and someone who served on the home front is something that reminds me that warfare is not confined to the trenches," Dye said. "It reminds us of the Great War, and all warfare since then has been something that involved everyone. It's a collective experience ... Sadly, whether you are in New York, in London, or in Kandahar, warfare touches all of our lives." She was born Florence Beatrice Patterson in London on February 19, 1901, and joined the newly formed Women's Royal Air Force in September 1918 at the age of 17. The service trained women to work as mechanics, drivers and in other jobs to free men for front-line duty. Green went to work as a steward in the officers' mess, first at the Narborough airdrome and then at RAF Marham in eastern England, and was serving there when the war ended. The photo below was taken in February 2010 at a celebration of Florence's 109th birthday.
