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.
1967: Jack Ruby, the Dallas-area nightclub operator who shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald, President John F. Kennedy's accused assassin, dies of a pulmonary embolism, secondary to lung cancer, at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. The hospital is the same one where Oswald had died and Kennedy had been pronounced dead after his assassination. Ruby had been convicted in Oswald's death, but an appeals court had ruled he had been denied a fair trial and ordered his conviction reversed. Ruby's death came before he could be retried.
