Oh, all right. Baa.

Yoinked from so many people by now, I’m not bothering to credit any of ’em. Three events, two births, one death. I’m going to do a little more.

The Things:

1871 – Henry Morton Stanley locates missing explorer and missionary, Dr. David Livingstone in Ujiji, near Lake Tanganyika saying “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”

1928 – Michinomiya Hirohito is crowned the 124th Emperor of Japan

1969 – National Educational Television (the predecessor to the Public Broadcasting Service) in the United States debuts the children’s television program Sesame Street.

1975 – The 729-foot-long freighter SS Edmund Fitzgerald sinks during a storm on Lake Superior, killing all 29 crew on board.

Not on Wiki: According to Bishop Ussher’s chronology, Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden.

The Arrivals:

1483 – Martin Luther, German protestant reformer (d. 1546)

1940 – David “Screaming Lord” Sutch, English musician (d. 1999)
