Related Events on This Date

In 1789, The Revolutionary War was over, and the Continental Army disbanded. But the founding fathers thought it might be a good idea to institute some means of defense for our country. And so it was on this date in 1789 that the U.S. War Department organized Americaʹs first standing army. 700 troops would serve for three years.

In 1829, Londonʹs reorganized police force, which became known as Scotland Yard, went on duty. The name “Scotland Yard” comes from the location of their first headquarters, near Charing Cross.

In 1907, The foundation stone was laid for the Washington National Cathedral, which wasnʹt fully completed until this date in 1990.

In 1930, “This is Lowell Thomas.” Those words were spoken for the first time, as a young Lowell Thomas made his debut on CBS Radio this day. He replaced Floyd Gibbons on the nightly (6:45 p.m.), 15-minute newscast. Thomas, who started as a reporter for the New York “Daily News” (at age 19), was heard on the radio for the next 46 years.

In 1934, The Mickey Mouse film, “Mickey Plays Papa”, is released. Pluto also appears.

In 1940, “Double or Nothing”, a radio quiz show, was first heard on this day — on the Mutual Radio Network. Each time contestants answered questions correctly, their winnings would double — from $20 to $40 to the big payoff of $80. If they gave an incorrect answer, they were gone! Nobody bet on long how long the show would last. Good thing. It kept going for a dozen years. Among the sponsors: Feen-A-Mint, Chooz breath candy and Campbellʹs soup.

In 1941, Joe Louis knocked out Lou Nova in the sixth round at the Polo Grounds in New York to retain the world heavyweight title.

In 1942, Actress Madeline Kahn was born in Boston, Massachusetts. She made her feature-length film debut in Peter Bogdanovichʹs 1973 comedy, “Whatʹs Up, Doc?” and was nominated for best supporting actress Oscars for both Bogdanovichʹs “Paper Moon” and Mel Brooksʹs “Blazing Saddles.” Her other films include “Young Frankenstein,” “High Anxiety,” “The Cheap Detective,” “History of the World Part I,” “Clue,” “Betsyʹs Wedding,” “Mixed Nuts” and “Nixon.” Kahn won a 1993 Tony Award for her role in “The Sisters Rosensweig” and also starred in TVʹs “Cosby” show. She died of ovarian cancer at age 57 in New York City on December 3, 1999.

In 1946, Mystery fans remember when “The Adventures of Sam Spade” debuted on CBS Radio this Sunday night. (It had aired in the summer of 1946 on ABC on Friday nights.) “The Adventures of Sam Spade”, with Howard Duff playing Spade, became a big hit in the Sunday night radio lineup. And now a word from our sponsor: “Use Wildroot Cream Oil, Charlie…it keeps your hair in trim.”

In 1951, This day marked the first televised color broadcast of a football game between the University of California and University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphiaʹs Franklin Field. California won the Game 35-0. It was broadcast on CBS-TV.

In 1953, The family comedy “Make Room for Daddy,” starring Danny Thomas, premiered on ABC-TV.

In 1955, “Sergeant Preston”, TV Adventure, of The Yukon, radio '47-55, debut on CBS.

In 1956, On the cover of TV Guide: “Jackie Gleason”. Other Articles: Lone Ranger, Pt.3 Elvis, Mickey Mantle
