On This Day

07 Mar

One of my favorite journalistic sources to check out on a regular basis is the “On This Day” page in the online version of The New York Times.  It’s a succinct and well-organized snapshot of various historical moments that have occurred on any given calendar date.  Prominent among the content, to my keen interest, is a generous handful of noteworthy individuals, both living and dead, whose birthday falls on this day.  The page was recently redesigned, and I appreciate the many visual improvements all around.

I recommend this page as a quick and interesting dose of history du jour.  After all, something of course has always happened every day.  No doubt this will continue!
