Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 108 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.

Today is National Cat Day

Today is National Cat Day

National Cat Day was initiated by Pet Lifestyle Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate, Colleen Paige, in 2005 to make the the public recognize the enormous number of cats that need rescuing. They were first domesticated in the Middle East’s Fertile Crescent as early as 12,000 years ago. When humans relied on hunting as their main source of food, dogs were most useful – but when the first agricultural societies emerged, cats became invaluable. Domesticated cats became responsible for keeping grain stores free of mice and other rodents. Today, cats can be found in 34% of American households, making them the most popular house pet in the United States.

Today in History: United Nations founded in 1945

72 years ago today, in an effort to promote international peace and security, the United Nations was formed. The founding 51 member countries established the UN following World War II with the idea to prevent another such conflict from happening, replacing the ineffective League of Nations that was formed after World War I. Aside from peacebuilding, the UN works for causes related to humanitarian assistance, sustainable development, disaster relief and the advancement of women. The UN’s headquarters are in New York City. There are currently 193 United Nations member states.

Mona Lisa shown at Castle Clos Lucé in 1517

Mona Lisa shown at Castle Clos Lucé in 1517

500 years ago today, Leonardo da Vinci allegedly presented his Mona Lisa to King Francis I of France. Da Vinci was invited to work at King’s castle in 1516 and it is believed that he took the Mona Lisa (and several other works) with him where he continued to make refinements to his masterpiece before presenting it to the King. The Mona Lisa was acquired by King Francis at the time and is now property of the French Republic. It is likely the most visited, most written and talked about, and possibly even the most valuable painting in the world. It has been on permanent display at the Louvre in Paris since 1797.

California had been only part of the United States territory for two years (following the Mexican-American War) when it was admitted to the Union as the 31st state of the United States on September 9, 1850. The second largest state at the time (until the admission of Alaska), California is currently the most populous U.S. state. Blessed with beautiful beaches, mountains, and stunning scenery, it is home to Yosemite National Park, the world class city of San Francisco and tourist sensations ranging from the Golden Gate to Disneyland.
