In 1952, in the year that Jimmie Beachem was born, on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.

In 1966, Jimmie was merely 14 years old when on September 8th, the first Star Trek episode, "The Man Trap," was broadcast on NBC. The plot concerned a creature that sucked salt from human bodies. The original series only aired for 3 seasons due to low ratings.
