1928 - In the year that Douglas A Long was born, aviatrix Amelia Earhart, age 31, became the first woman to fly solo across North America and back in August. In June, she had been part of a 3 man crew that flew the Atlantic Ocean but since she had no instrument training, she couldn't fly the plane - she kept the flight log. The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1969 - By the time he was 41 years old, on July 20th, the first men walked on the moon. Apollo 11 astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E.

They fulfilled the promise of President Kennedy's commitment in 1961 to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade.

1977 - At the age of 49 years old, Douglas was alive when on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War.

1982 - Douglas was 54 years old when on September 14th, Princess Grace of Monaco (American actress Grace Kelly), 52, died of injuries when her car plunged off a mountain road.

It's believed that the accident was caused when Princess Grace, who was driving, had a mild stroke.

1992 - In the year of Douglas A Long's passing, on April 29th, riots began in Los Angeles after the "Rodney King" verdict was issued.
