At the time, the Teapot Dome scandal was seen as "greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics".

1932 - Dan was 53 years old when five years to the day after Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic, Amelia Earhart flew solo from Newfoundland to Ireland, the first woman to cross the Atlantic solo and the first to replicate Lindbergh's feat. She flew over 2,000 miles in just under 15 hours.

1971 - In the year of Dan Corak's passing, in March, Intel shipped the first microprocessor to Busicom, a Japanese manufacturer of calculators.
