History: Today is the 20th anniversary of 9/11

On the morning of September 11, 2001, a series of 4 coordinated suicide attacks were carried out by the terrorist group, Al Qaeda. 19 militants hijacked 4 California bound airplanes from East Coast cities in the US and used the planes to target major American landmarks. Two planes were crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Center, which caused them to collapse within two hours of being struck. One plane was crashed into the Pentagon building while the fourth plane, thought to be bound towards Washington DC, crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers tried to fight back against the hijackers. The attacks claimed the lives of about 3,000 people and destroyed property worth billions of dollars. The attack was the precursor to the War Against Terror and the War in Afghanistan.

Today in History: New Amsterdam becomes New York in 1664

New York City traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan; the post was named New Amsterdam in 1626. The city and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country’s largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a world symbol of the United States and its ideals of liberty and peace.

Today in History: Mark Spitz wins 7th Gold in 1972

On this day in 1972, U.S. swimmer legend Mark Spitz won his 7th gold medal at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany. He earned the gold when Spitz and his team set a new world record in the 400-meter medley relay. Spitz also set new world records in the six other events in which he won the gold. At the time, no other athlete had won so many gold medals at a single Olympiad, a record that would stand until Michael Phelps took home 8 gold medals at the 2012 Beijing Games.

Today in History: Josef Müller-Brockmann passed away in 1996

Josef Müller-Brockmann studied architecture, design, and history of art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the University in Zurich. At the age of 22, he opened his own studio with a focus on graphic design, exhibition design, and photography. His objective design practices led to the breakthrough of the “Swiss Style” during the 1950s. In 1958, Müller-Brockmann became the founder and co-editor (until 1965) of the journal Neue Grafik (New Graphic Design), spreading the principles of Swiss Design internationally. Müller-Brockmann never allowed his designs to be influenced by trends or styles but followed his own aesthetics and ethics. His posters provided numerous institutions and companies with a convincing graphic appearance and became a model in their quality. Müller-Brockmann passed away on August 30, 1996 in Zurich.
