Construction begins on the Brooklyn Bridge, FDR founds the March of Dimes, Apple Computer is incorporated, and Gen. Manuel Noriega surrenders, all on this day.
1980: Joy Adamson, an Austrian naturalist known as the author of the best-selling book "Born Free," is found dead at the age of 69 in Shaba National Reserve in Kenya, Africa. Although she was initially thought to have been killed by a lion, a teenaged herder she had briefly employed would later confess to killing Adamson because she had chased him away from the camp after a wage disagreement. "Born Free," which describes Adamson's experiences raising a lion cub named Elsa, was printed in several languages and made into an Academy Award-winning movie of the same name.
