Is This Woman Amelia Earhart In 1970 a sensational book, Amelia Earhart Lives, was published by McGraw-Hill. Its author, Joe Klaas, claimed the woman in this photograph, Irene Bolan, was actually missing aviator Amelia Earhart! Klaas claimed that Earhart's attempted round-the-world flight and disappearance was part of an elaborate pre-Second World War spy mission orchestrated by the U.S. government. Klaas' tale was based on information received by Major Joseph Gervais. Gervais had a chance encounter with Bolan at a 1965 air show and was surprised by the resemblance between Bolan and Earhart (who had vanished over the Pacific Ocean in 1937). Klass further asserted that modern photographic analysis techniques proved that Bolan and Earhart had identical facial features--right down to the tear ducts. Bolan was a pilot too, but skeptics doubted Klass' claim. An outraged Bolan sued McGraw-Hill for $1.5 million. The book was pulled and the parties settled out of court. Still, there are some people who think Klaas was right...

Edward R Murrow Edward R. Murrow was arguably the most important and influential journalist in American history. His first-person radio reports from hot-spot European locales in the late 1930s gave his CBS listeners a sense of how the world was moving towards war. Murrow is most renowned for his compelling radio broadcasts from London during the Blitz. They always began, 'This...is London.' Murrow's distinguished career continued into the television era with See It Now and various specials. He famously took on Senator Joseph McCarthy when a friend, Laurence Duggan, committed suicide after McCarthy accused him of being a communist spy. (An examination of decrypted Soviet archives years later proved McCarthy was correct!) One ominous episode of See It Now examined the dangers of cigarettes--while the chain-smoking Murrow puffed away on his indispensible Camels. Murrow said he couldn't possibly go more than 30 minutes without a cigarette. He died in 1965, two days after his 57th birthday, of lung cancer. He was featured on a 29-cent stamp in 1994. The original stamp design showed him with a cigarette in his hand. It was rejected.

IN MEMORY OF ROBERT CULP -I SPY Robert Culp, the actor who teamed with Bill Cosby in the racially groundbreaking TV series "I Spy" and was Bob in the critically acclaimed sex comedy "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice," died Wednesday after collapsing outside his Hollywood home, his manager said. Culp was 79. Manager Hillard Elkins said the actor was on a walk when he fell. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead just before noon. The actor's son was told he died of a heart attack, Elkins said, though police were unsure if the fall was medically related.

Second Attack on Pearl Harbor - 1942 Few American realize the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor twice during the Second World War. The second attack, on March 4, 1942, was hushed up by the military. The residents who lived in the area where the bombs fell were not even sure what had happened. Many believed it was a local defense battery practice. The intended target, Pearl Harbor, was miles away from where the Japanese bombs actually fell. Neverthless, less than 90 days after the famous December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, the Japanese attempted a second attack. On Wednesday, March 4, 1942 during the early morning hours, four 550-pound bombs were dropped on Mount Tantalus, a quiet residential section in Honolulu. The U.S. Military officials confirmed two enemy planes were responsible for the raid. The planes were Kawanishi H8K flying boats that launched from a spy base housed near the Hawaiian archipelago. There were no injuries reported or loss of life and only limited property damage. The bombs fell in a wooded section of the area, creating a large crater and shattering a few windows.

Get Smart TV Guide Cover 1967 Barbara Feldon and Don Adams of Get Smart grace this TV Guide cover from 1967. Get Smart was an extremely popular spy spoof that ran on NBC from 1965 to 1970 that pitted the counter-espionage activities of CONTROL versus the nefarious deeds of KAOS. The show introduced the phrase "would you believe..." into popular culture. The youthful looking Adams was ten years Feldon's senior. Adams won three consecutive Emmys playing Maxwell Smart (CONTROL agent 86). Feldon was nominated for two Emmys for her role as CONTROL agent 99. Adams was a WWII veteran who was the only survivor from a platoon that saw action on Guadalcanal. Feldon first gained fame by winning the jackpot on The $64,000 Question. Her subject was Shakespeare.

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.
