Tonya Maxene Harding was born in Portland, Oregon where
she stopped attending David Douglas High School during her
sophomore year and later earned a
GED.

Harding was a figure skating champion, a two-time Olympian, and
a two-time Skate America Champion. She became the subject of
controversy after her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, conspired with
Shawn Eckhardt and Shane Stant to physically assault her skating
competitor Nancy Kerrigan at a practice session during the 1994
U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit.

Marilyn Monroe  (Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)

loveletter

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – It’s no secret Joe DiMaggio loved Marilyn
Monroe. The baseball great cried at her funeral and for 20 years had
flowers placed at her crypt several times a week.

The public displays were unusual for the famously stoic and private
DiMaggio. Now, his heartbreak over the breakup of their marriage will
get a rare public airing when "Marilyn Monroe’s Lost Archives" goes up
for bid at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills next month.

The 300 items also include love letters from Monroe’s third and final
husband, playwright Arthur Miller.
