The King of Rock and Roll teamed up with TV’s reigning variety program, as
Elvis Presley appeared on “The Ed Sullivan Show” for the first time.

After earning big ratings for “The Steve Allen Show,” the Dorsey Brothers
“Stage Show” and “The Milton Berle Show,” Sullivan finally reneged on his
Presley ban, signing the controversial singing star to an unprecedented
$50,000 contract for three appearances.

With 60 million viewers—or 82.6 percent of TV viewers at the time—tuning in,
the appearance garnered the show’s best ratings in two years and became
the most-watched TV broadcast of the 1950s.

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.
