1940: Singer Anita Bryant, a former Miss Oklahoma beauty pageant winner who scored four Top 40 hits in the United States in the late 1950s and early 1960s, including "Paper Roses" and "In My Little Corner of the World," is born in Barnsdall, Okla. She later became known for her strong views against homosexuality and for campaigning in 1977 to repeal a local ordinance in Dade County, Florida, that prohibited discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
