Vikings sack Paris, the Hollywood Walk of Fame gets its first star, President Eisenhower dies, and Three Mile Island melts down, all on this day.
1985: Russian artist Marc Chagall, one of the most successful artists of the 20th century and the last surviving master of European modernism, dies at the age of 97 in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France. Chagall is best known as a painter, but created works in virtually every artistic medium, including book illustrations, stained glass, stage sets, ceramic, tapestries and fine art prints.
