1928:  George Gershwin's "An American in Paris" debuts

at Carnegie Hall
to good reviews.



1930:  Physicist Albert Einstein honored at City Hall by Mayor Jimmy Walker, and Columbia University President Nicholas Murray Butler, who dubs him the "ruling monarch of the mind."  Lot of good that did for Columbia; Princeton got Einstein.



1996:  The U.N. chose Ghana's Kofi Annan as it's seventh secretary-general.


Happy Birthdays to actor Steve Buscemi (1957); Fed Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke; Jamie Foxx (1967), and actor 
Dick Van Dyke (1925).
