He was released in 1962 after 1 year, 9 months and 10 days in prison.

1967 - At the age of 33 years old, Barbara was alive when on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.

1979 - Barbara was 45 years old when on March 28th, a partial nuclear meltdown occurred at the power plant at Three Mile Island Pennsylvania.
