Almanac – June 26th

1284 – Alledgedly the day in which 130 children were led out of the town of Hamelin by the Pied Piper.

1901 – Birth of Big Bill Broonzy, American blues singer/songwriter. His birth year may also have been 1893  or 1898, and I’ve also seen 1903 given ! 1901 generally seems to be the most likely.

 

1904 –  Birth of  Peter Lorre, Hungarian actor.

1909 –  Birth of Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis Presley’s manager

1963John F. Kennedy, on a visit to West Berlin, made his famous “I am a doughnut” speech.
