Touch typing is ubiquitous now - but Frank's win is what convinced everyone that the method was good!

A sensation, each Floradora girl was said to have married a millionaire.

In 1944, on December 16th, The Battle of the Bulge began in the Ardennes forest on the Western Front.

In 1950, on October 2, Charlie Brown appeared in the first Peanuts comic strip - created by Charles Schultz - and he was the only character in that strip. That year, Schultz said that Charlie was 4 years old, but Charlie aged a bit through the years.
