Born in 1924

It's Father's Day here in the US and I'm thinking about my dad, George J. Seamon, born in 1924, died in 2003.

Thanks to wikipedia, you can see what happened in history in your birth year, or anyone else's. So here are a few events that occured in the year my father was born, 1924:

- Vladimir Lenin died
- Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin is performed
- IBM is founded
- Adolf Hitler begins writing his book while imprisoned in Bavaria
- The Winter and Summer Olympics are held in France
- J. Edgar Hoover is appointed to head the FBI
- Mercedes-Benz is formed
- Toastmasters is founded
- Silent film director Thomas Ince died
- The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is held
- Andre Breton defines Surrealism
- Born in 1924: Lee Marvin, Marlon Brando, Doris Day, Buddy Hackett, Bobby Short, Truman Capote, Carroll O'Connor, Elizabeth (The Black Dahlia) Short, Jimmy Carter, Wally Cox, Ed Koch, Rod Serling, Henry Mancini, Eva Marie Saint, Don Knotts, leon Uris, Robert Bolt

My father loved history and read every book he could get his hands on about the Civil War and World War II. I think he would like this blog entry.
