Doremus35: Are You One, Are You Two, Are You Three?

Happy Birthday Doremus!

Here is a list of folks who share the August 17 birthday, including actors Robert DeNiro and Mae West, Tennessee woodsman and Congressman Davy Crockett, and author Jonathan Franzen, among others.

On Saturday, August 17, 1946, according to wiki, here were a couple of goings-on:

August 17, 1946 (Saturday)

Robert Penn Warren’s novel All the King’s Men was published for the first time, by Harcourt Press.[31]

Soviet physicist Pyotr L. Kapitsa was removed from his posts and put under house arrest after offending Lavrentiy Beria. Kapitsa, who would be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1978, was reportedly spared from execution by order of Joseph Stalin, and lived until 1984.[32]

Perhaps others in the FDL community can weigh in on what else was happening in 1946.

Happy birthday, Doremus, Ow Ow Owwwwwww!!!
