... 1996, Dolly the sheep, the first mammal cloned from an adult cell, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. She gave birth naturally to 4 lambs before she contracted arthritis and was euthanized in 2003.
... 1946, 4 days after the United States began testing atomic weapons in the Bikini Atoll, Louis Reard introduced in Paris a skimpy 2-piece swimsuit he named le bikini. In his Anatomy of the Nuremberg Trials, U.S. Prosecutor Telford Taylor made a particular mention of his 1st sight of the new item of couture -- noteworthy given the ongoing search by IntLawGrrl Diane Orentlicher [aka Beatrice] for the women lawyers who contributed to those trials.
... 1937, U.S. Rep. Nita M. Lowey (D-N.Y.) was born in New York City.
