For almost a quarter of a century, the Ziegfeld follies were the toast of Broadway.

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1981 - Harry was 74 years old when on January 20th, Ronald Reagan became the 40th President of the United States. He ran against the incumbent, Jimmy Carter, and won 50.7% of the popular vote to Carter's 41.0%.
