On this day in June of 1963, Vietnamese Mahayana Buddhist monk Thích
Quang Duc burned himself to death at a busy intersection in Saigon. He

terms, Buddhism too, needed to have its martyrs.

Photographer Malcolm Browne captured the scene in Saigon for the
Associated Press, and the stark image quickly became an iconic visual
of the turbulent 1960s.

During a violent storm on his first return voyage, Columbus, then approximately
41, suffered an attack of what was believed at the time to be gout. During later
years, he was plagued with influenza and other fevers, bleeding from the eyes,
and prolonged attacks of gout. The suspected attacks increased in duration
and severity, sometimes leaving Columbus bedridden for months at a time,
and culminated in his death 14 years later at age 54.
