MAN WITH A MISSION: Stanley found Livingstone on this day in 1871. Having begun his search the previous March for missing explorer-missionary David Livingstone, explorer Henry M. Stanley found him at Ujiji (Africa) and uttered the immortal words, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume!”

BY THE NUMBERS: Area codes were introduced on this day in 1951. The 10-digit North American Numbering Plan, which provides area codes for Canada, the U.S. and many Caribbean nations, was devised in 1947 by AT&T and Bell Labs. Eighty-four area codes were assigned. However, all long-distance calls at that time were operator-assisted. On Nov. 10, 1951, the mayor of Englewood, N.J. (area code 201) direct-dialed the mayor of Alameda, Cal. By 1960, all telephone customers could dial long-distance.
