Charles (Chuck) Edward Anderson Berry
(October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017)

Chuck Berry was a singer and songwriter, and one
of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs
such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven"
(1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B.
Goode
" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm
and blues
into the major elements that made rock
and roll distinctive. Writing lyrics that focused on
teen life and consumerism, and developing a music
style that included guitar solos and showmanship,
Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock
music. He was among the first musicians to be
inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on
its opening in 1986.

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.

On this day in 1969, Apollo 11 made thirty orbits of the moon which allowed
them to view the landing site: the southern Sea of Tranquility, one of the
most suitably flat areas. This area had confirmed by the
Apollo 10 ‘dress
rehearsal’ mission
in which the crew captured vital film footage and photos 
while orbiting the moon.
