The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1940 - When this person was just 5 years old, on November 5th, President Franklin Roosevelt was elected to a third term, defeating Wendell Willkie of Indiana (a corporate lawyer).

1982 - At the age of 47 years old, Thado was alive when on September 14th, Princess Grace of Monaco (American actress Grace Kelly), 52, died of injuries when her car plunged off a mountain road.

It's believed that the accident was caused when Princess Grace, who was driving, had a mild stroke.
