The great Northeast blackout occurred on this day in 1965,  as several
states and parts of Canada were hit by a series of power failures lasting
up to 13 1/2 hours. More than 30 million people were into darkness in
one of the biggest electrical power failures in history. The blackout
was caused by a misconfigured power line at a hydroelectric power
station at Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

THE RED SCARE BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1947

On October 20, 1947, the notorious Red Scare kicks into high gear in
Washington, as a Congressional committee begins investigating
Communist influence in one of the world’s richest and most
glamorous communities: Hollywood.

After World War II, the Cold War began to heat up between the world’s
two superpowers—the United States and the communist-controlled
Soviet Union. In Washington, conservative watchdogs worked to out
communists in government before setting their sights on alleged
“Reds” in the famously liberal movie industry. In an investigation that
began in October 1947, the House Un-American Activities Committee 
grilled a number of prominent witnesses, asking bluntly “Are you or
have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?” Whether out
of patriotism or fear, some witnesses—including director Elia Kazan,
actors Gary Cooper and Robert Taylor and studio honchos Walt Disney
and Jack Warner—gave the committee names of colleagues they
suspected of being communists.

A small group known as the “Hollywood Ten” resisted, complaining
that the hearings were illegal and violated their
First Amendment
rights.
