The Nuremberg Trials begin, Princess Elizabeth gets married, Windows 1.0 is released, and Michael Jackson is arrested, all on this day.
1917: Robert Byrd, who would become the longest serving member of the U.S. Senate, is born under the birth name Cornelius Calvin Sale Jr. in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Byrd served as a U.S. representative from 1953 until 1959 and as a U.S. senator from 1959 to 2010. Besides being the longest-serving senator at the time of his death at age 92 on June 28, 2010, he was also the longest-serving member of the U.S. Congress, but the latter record was surpassed by U.S. Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., in June 2013.
