Today in History: Planes banned from flying over White House in 1935

84 years ago today, President Franklin D. Roosevelt banned all airplanes from flying over the White House. His reasoning? Supposedly, the planes were disrupting president’s sleep. The ban is still in effect today, serving a greater purpose of national security.

Today in History: Andy Warhol died in 1987

32 years ago today, one of the most influential artists of the second half of the 20th century, passed away. Andy Warhol (born Andrew Warhola in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) was a pioneer of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and a cultural icon. Warhol studied at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh before moving to New York in 1950. His studio, commonly known as “The Factory,” was a famous meeting place for New York artists, intellectuals and celebrities. From the mid-1960s on, Warhol no longer painted much himself. He produced a number of underground films, including “Chelsea Girls” (1966) and “Trash” (1970) and even managed a punk rock band, The Velvet Underground. Warhol passed away in Manhattan on February 22, 1987.

Today in History: Polaroid introduces the instant camera in 1947

Today in History: Polaroid introduces the instant camera in 1947

62 years ago today, Polaroid founder Edwin Land first demonstrated the instant camera at a meeting of the Optical Society of America in New York City. The American scientist got his idea while vacationing in Mexico in 1944 when he introduced his daughter Jennifer to the basic principles of photography. Inspired by his daughter’s question why the images taken with the camera could not be seen immediately, Land spent his remaining vacation working on a preliminary design and concept for an instant camera. Although dismissed by most of his peers as a gimmick, the first Polaroid camera hit the market only one year later in November of 1948. By 1956, Polaroid had sold one million instant cameras. Today, that number has grown to over 165 million.
