On this day in 1936, the first issue of the pictorial magazine Life 
was published, featuring a cover photo of the Fort Peck Dam’s
spillway by Margaret Bourke-White.

Life actually had its start earlier in the 20th century as a different
kind of magazine: a weekly humor publication, not unlike today’s
The New Yorker in its use of tart cartoons, humorous pieces and
cultural reporting. When the original Life folded during the
Great
Depression
, the influential American publisher Henry Luce
bought the name and re-launched the magazine as a picture-
based periodical on this day in 1936. By this time, Luce had
already
enjoyed great success as the publisher of Time, a
weekly news
magazine.

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.
