SUNDAY DEBUT ON THIS DAY IN 1952

Peanuts

The first Sunday strip of Peanuts (above) appeared in the half-page format,
which was the only complete format for the entire life of the Sunday strip. Most 
of the other characters that eventually became the main characters of Peanuts
did not appear until later. The comic strip was written and illustrated by Charles
M. Schulz and premiered on October 2, 1950 in nine newspapers.

FAMOUS ABDUCTION ON THIS DAY IN 1963

Frank Sinatra, Jr. was kidnapped, at the age of 19 from a room at Harrah’s
Lake Tahoe
. He was released two days later after his father paid a ransom
of $240,000 demanded by the kidnappers. Barry Keenan, Johnny Irwin, and
Joe Amsler were soon captured, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced to
long prison terms for kidnapping, of which they served only small terms. The
mastermind Keenan was later found to have been legally insane at the time
of the crime, thus not responsible for his actions. Famed attorney Gladys
Root
represented one of the three men.
