SMALL TALK
ON THIS DATE: In 1784, four counties in western North Carolina declared their independence as the state of Franklin. The counties lay in what would eventually become Tennessee. In 1814, first lady Dolley Madison saved a portrait of George Washington from being looted by British troops during the War of 1812. In 1838, the first class graduated from Mount Holyoke Female Seminary in South Hadley, Massachusetts, one of the first colleges for women. In 1926, the death of silent-screen idol Rudolph Valentino at the age of 31 sent his fans into a hysterical state of mass mourning. In his brief film career, the Italian-born actor established a reputation as the archetypal screen lover. In 1947, the first Little League World Series champion was crowned. In 1973, a botched bank robbery in Stockholm resulted in a hostage situation, and, over the course of a six-day standoff, the captives formed an unlikely bond with their captor, giving rise to the term “Stockholm syndrome.” In 1978, the late National Basketball Association player Kobe Bryant, one of the leading players in the early 21st century, was born in Philadelphia. In 1989, as punishment for betting on Major League Baseball, Cincinnati Reds manager Pete Rose accepted a settlement that included a lifetime ban from the game. In 2021, the Food and Drug Administration fully approved the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older, following a manufacturing review and analysis of the company’s expanded clinical trial, which included approximately 44,000 participants and found the vaccine to be 91% effective in preventing COVID-19 disease.
