1965 - When he was 38 years old, the television show "I Spy" premiered in the fall season on NBC. The stars were Bill Cosby and Robert Culp, making Cosby the first African American to headline a television show. Four stations - in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama - refused to air the show.

1977 - At the age of 50 years old, Fernando was alive when on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War.
