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: Opening of the Panama Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco in 1915

104 years ago today, the Panama-Pacific International Exposition opened its doors to the public. This 1915 “World’s Fair” celebrated the completion of the Panama Canal, the discovery of the Pacific Ocean 400 years prior, and San Francisco’s reconstruction following the great earthquake of 1906. The exposition continued through December 4, 1915 and was considered a huge economic success, helping the entire Bay Area getting back on its feet. The fair covered an area of 76 city blocks (630 acres) where hundreds of buildings featured exhibits related to industry, modernization and the arts. Among the exhibits were the first steam locomotive, purchased by Southern Pacific Railroad, and the Liberty Bell (taken by train from Philadelphia). The expo’s centerpiece was the Tower of Jewels, a structure standing 43 stories tall and covered with more than 100,000 free-swinging bits of cut glass “jewels.” Most attractions were taken down in late 1915. The Palace of Fine Arts was the only surviving building on the Expo grounds and has been completely reconstructed in the 1960s.
