The man, Nathuram Godse, shot Gandhi 3 times. He died immediately. The shooter was tried, convicted, and hung in November 1949.

1958 - Harold was 37 years old when on January 1st, the European Economic Community (Common Market) came into operation.

AT&T lost 70% of its book value due to this move.
