Duke Ellington’s “Cocktails For Two” is a chart-buster; Hank Aaron and Bill Russell are born; Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger die; Afghanistan joins The League of Nations; the first Flash Gordon comic strip is published in the U.S.; the Apollo Theater opens in Harlem; and Max Baer defeats Primo Carnera for the heavyweight crown.

  • I was going to wing it at 1932, but since Hammerin' Hank is listed first in my paper copy of the Baseball Encyclopedia, he was easy to find. But I will suppress the correct answer for the benefit of later responders.
