Rocky Marciano becomes the heavyweight champion of the world; Elizabeth II proclaimed queen of UK; NBC debuts Today show; Harry Truman seizes steel mills; polio kills 3300 Americans; Charlie Chaplin is refused entry into U.S.; and Sun Records begins releasing records in Memphis.
Marciano, a great champion. I remember QEII coronation on black and white TV. Assuming Truman had a second term (can't remember), maybe he wanted to take the steel mills sooner but didn't want to risk losing re-election. Good grief, was Charlie Chaplin still alive after I was born? Anyway, 1953.
1951 not looking anything up. Wow, mom and kiddo, looking sharp and dressed to fly, Eli.
Precious shot....they look so spiffy! 1952?
