1938 - In the year that Larthel Pigram was born, on October 30th, a Sunday, The Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast Orson Welles' special Halloween show The War of the World's. A clever take on H.G. Wells' novel, the show began with simulated "breaking news" of an invasion by Martians. Because of the realistic nature of the "news," there was a public outcry the next day, calling for regulation by the FCC. Although the current story is that many were fooled and panicked, in reality very few people were fooled. But the show made Orson Welles' career.

Upon leaving, a helicopter collided with a transport plane and the men were killed.

1995 - By the time this person was 57 years old, on September 3rd, eBay was founded in San Jose California.
