He was president of the Society of American Magicians and stringently upheld professional ethics. He died of complications from a ruptured appendix. Although he had received a blow to the area a couple of days previously, the connection between the blow and his appendicitis is disputed.

In 1943, by the time she was 17 years old, on March 31st, the Broadway musical Oklahoma! opened.

The musical ran for 2,212 performances originally and was made into a movie in 1954.

In 1967, when she was 41 years old, on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.
