Today in History: The 33 RPM LP was introduced in 1948

70 years ago today, Columbia Records introduced the 33 1/3 rpm microgroove record album. In many ways this invention gave birth to the modern pop album. Of course, all kinds of albums were (and still are) released as vinyl records, but pop albums were the first to be structured around the format. The length, number and order of songs were designed around the 22 minute per side limitation.

Today in History: Christo born in 1935

The avant-garde artist known as Christo (Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, born in Bulgaria) is turning 83 today. Christo is famous for his spectacular, large-scale installations. He and hiswife have wrapped the Reichstag in Berlin, the Pont Neuf in Paris, and turned New York’s Central Park orange with his project The Gates. But even at age 83, Christo shows no signs of slowing down. We can’t wait to see what he has planned next.

Today in History: The Pen

Today in History: The Pen

75 years ago today, 1943, Hungarian-born László Biró received the first patent for the pen. Biró was a journalist who was frustrated with the use of the fountain pen: it took too much time to refill the ink and there seemed to be no way to avoid ink smudges. Biró noticed newspaper inks seemed to dry more quickly, thus rendering the paper stain free, and so he set out to design a pen using the same type of ink. He filed a British patent in 1938 and continued to develop and improve the pen’s design together with his brother György and their friend Juan Jorge Meynin. A new patent for the improved pen was filed in 1943: it was the first real ballpoint pen as we know it today. The pen became an immediate bestseller in the United States after World War II where it was first introduced in the fall of 1945 at a New York department store. Despite its high price of $9, some 10,000 pens were sold within the first week

Today in History: Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most influential architects of his time. He designed more than 1,000 structures, over 500 of which were built. He also created many of the interior elements of his buildings, incl. furniture. Wright developed a philosophy he titled “organic architecture” believing that structures needed to blend into the landscape, creating a harmony between humanity and its environment. Frank Lloyd Wright died on April 9, 1959, in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1991, he was recognized by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American architect of all time.”
