A HELPING HAND: William Booth was born on this day in 1829. A Methodist minister, he began an evangelical ministry in the East End of London in 1865 and established mission stations to feed and house the poor. In 1878 he changed the name of the organization to the Salvation Army. He died in 1912.
LET IT BE: Paul McCartney left the Beatles on this day in 1970. In a press release accompanying promotional copies of his new solo album, McCartney announced that he had no plans for working with the Beatles because of “personal differences, business differences, musical differences.” He stated that he didn’t know if the break was temporary or permanent, but the years-long tension in the group coupled with the musicians’ solo work brought about the end of the band that year.
Special thanks to “Chase’s Calendar of Events” and Brooklyn Public Library.
“If someone remembers me as a coach, they still call me ‘Coach,’ but if they know me from the video game, they just call me ‘Madden.’”
— John Madden, who was born on this day in 1936
