In 1962, at the age of merely 7 years old, Samuel was alive when on October 1st, African-American James H.

He had been inspired by President Kennedy's inaugural address to apply for admission.

In 1979, he was 24 years old when on November 4th, Iranian militant students seized the US embassy in Teheran and held 52 American citizens and diplomats hostage for 444 days. They were released at the end of the inauguration speech of the newly elected Ronald Reagan.
