Although he had received a blow to the area a couple of days previously, the connection between the blow and his appendicitis is disputed.

The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.

1977 - She was 51 years old when on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War. He fulfilled a campaign promise with the pardon.
