On August 23, 1902, pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer, who
changed the way Americans prepare food by advocating the use of
standardized measurements in recipes, opened Miss Farmer’s School
of Cookery in Boston. In addition to teaching women about cooking,
Farmer later educated medical professionals about the importance
of proper nutrition for the sick.

On August 1, 1966, after stabbing his mother and his wife to death
the night before,
Charles Whitman,(above) a former Marine, took
rifles and other weapons to the observation deck atop the
Main
Building tower
 at the University of Texas at Austin, then opened
fire indiscriminately
on persons on the surrounding campus and
streets. Over the next 96
minutes he shot and killed 16 people
(including one unborn child)
and injured 31 others; a final victim
died in 2001 from the lingering effects of his wounds. The incident
ended when a policeman and a
civilian reached Whitman and shot
him dead. The attack was the deadliest
mass shooting by a lone
gunman in U.S. history
until it was surpassed 18 years later by the
San Ysidro McDonald’s massacre.

The American space probe Ranger 7 transmitted pictures of the
moon’s surface on this day in 1964. It was the first space probe 
of the United States to successfully transmit close images of
the lunar surface back
to Earth. It was also the first completely
successful flight of the Ranger
program.
