Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

1963 - Minnie was 29 years old when the British Secretary of War, 46 year old John Profumo ,was forced to resign when he lied about an affair with 19 year old Christine Keeler.

1985 - At the age of 51 years old, Minnie was alive when on March 15th, the first internet domain name was registered - Symbolics.com. Symbolics, Inc., a spinoff of the MIT AI Lab, was a computer manufacturer headquartered in Massachusetts. The company no longer exists and the domain name was sold 25 years later.

1992 - By the time she was 58 years old, on April 29th, riots began in Los Angeles after the "Rodney King" verdict was issued.
