History: 1st Presidential TV Debate in 1960

History: 1st Presidential TV Debate in 1960
On this day in 1960, for the first time in U.S. history, a debate between major party presidential candidates is shown on television. The presidential hopefuls, John F. Kennedy, a Democratic senator of Massachusetts, and Richard M. Nixon, the vice president of the United States, met in a Chicago studio to discuss U.S. domestic matters. It was the first of four televised debates. On November 8, 1960, Kennedy won 49.7 percent of the popular vote in one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history, surpassing by a fraction the 49.6 percent received by his Republican opponent.

Today in History: Jules Cheret died in 1932

Today in History: Jules Cheret died in 1932

Jules Chéret, (born May 31, 1836, Paris, France—died September 23, 1932, Nice), was a French poster illustrator and graphic designer who has been called “the father of the modern poster.” After apprenticing as a lithographer from 1849 and studying drawing, Chéret received his first major poster commission in 1858 for Jacques Offenbach’s operetta Orpheus in the Underworld (1858). From 1859 to 1866 he designed posters and book jackets in London where he was strongly influenced by the British approach to poster design and printing. On returning to France, Chéret created vivid poster ads for the cabarets, music halls, and theaters such as the Eldorado, the Olympia, the Folies Bergère, or the Moulin Rouge. He created posters and illustrations for the satirical weekly Le Courrier français. In 1895, Cheret created the Maîtres de l’Affiche collection, a significant art publication of smaller sized reproductions featuring the best works of ninety-seven Parisian artists. His success inspired an industry that saw the emergence of a new generation of poster designers and painters such as Charles Gesmar and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. One of his students was Georges de Feure. In his old age, Cheret retired to the pleasant climate of the French Riviera at Nice. He died in 1932 at the age of 96. Cheret was awarded the Légion d’honneur by the French Government in 1890 for his outstanding contributions to the graphic arts. Although his paintings earned him a certain respect, it was his work creating advertising posters, taken on just to pay his bills but eventually his dedication, for which he is remembered today.

Today in History: Great Garbo born in 1905

Today in History: Great Garbo born in 1905

Greta Garbo (born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson) was a Swedish film actress during the 1920s and 1930s. Garbo was nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Actress and received an Academy Honorary Award in 1954 for her “luminous and unforgettable screen performances.” Garbo launched her career in Hollywood in 1925. Her 1926 performance in Flesh and the Devil, her third movie, made her an international star. Her success continued in films such as Mata Hari (1931) and Grand Hotel (1932) but declined in the late 1930s when she was one of the many stars labeled “Box Office Poison” in 1938. Her career revived upon her turn to comedy in Ninotchka (1939)but after the failure of Two-Faced Woman (1941), she retired from the screen, at the age of 35, after acting in twenty-eight films. From then on, Garbo declined all opportunities to return to the screen. Shunning publicity, she led a private life until her death in 1990. Source: wikipedia.org.
