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.
1939: Hall of Fame hockey player Bobby Hull, nicknamed "The Golden Jet" and one of the greatest ice hockey players of all time, is born in Pointe Anne, Ontario, Canada. In his 23 years in the National Hockey League and World Hockey Association, he played for the Chicago Black Hawks, Winnipeg Jets and Hartford Whalers. He's seen here with his son, fellow NHL great Brett Hull, during a 2005 ceremony by the Phoenix Coyotes (who were once the original Winnipeg Jets team before relocating) to unretire his number so his son could wear it.
