Three B-52s become the first aircraft to circle the globe non-stop, Willie O'Ree breaks the NHL's color barrier, "The Jeffersons" premieres, and Jim Thorpe gets his Olympic medals back, all on this day.
1967: Albert DeSalvo, who claimed to be the "Boston Strangler," the murderer of 13 women in the Boston area, is convicted for a series of unrelated robberies and rapes and is sentenced to life imprisonment. DeSalvo's murder confessions have been disputed and there was no physical evidence linking him to the deaths, and since he was killed in prison in 1973, debate continues today regarding which crimes he actually committed.
