Montana had granted women unrestricted voting rights in 1914, 6 years before women got the vote nationally.

Houdini was the most famed magician of his time and perhaps of all time, especially for his acts involving escapes - from handcuffs, straitjackets, chains, ropes slung from skyscrapers, and more. 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 June, she had been part of a 3 man crew that flew the Atlantic Ocean but since she had no instrument training, she couldn't fly the plane - she kept the flight log. The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1987 - At the age of 71 years old, Martha was alive when was the first time that a criminal in the United States - a serial rapist - was convicted through the use of DNA evidence.

Bush who was seeking his second term. Clinton won 43.01% of the popular vote to Bush's 37.45%.
