1933: Balto, the Siberian Husky noted for his role in the 1925 serum run to Nome, Alaska, dies at the age of 14. Balto led his team of sled dogs on the final leg of the run that transported diphtheria antitoxin from Anchorage, Alaska, to Nenana, Alaska, by train and then to Nome by dog sled to combat an outbreak of the disease. The run is commemorated by the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
