They were based on the research and suggestions of 150 advisors.

Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

1965 - Laurel was 77 years old when 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.
