OnThisDay: I'm starting another recurring theme for the Sope-Bocks. It will feature special events that occurred on certain days in history. The events will generally be little-known, but very important events that occurred throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Let's start the feature with these tidbits:
March 21, 1924 - Mass Investors Trust becomes 1st mutual fund set up in US.
March 21, 1947 - President Truman signs Executive Order 9835 requiring all federal employees to have allegiance to the United States. [I wish that EO was still enforced!]
March 21, 1961 - The Beatles' 1st appearance -- at the Cavern Club
March 21, 1965 - Martin Luther King Jr begins march from Selma to Montgomery, AL.
I hope you enjoy this new feature of the Sope-Bocks blog!
