Morning Reads – Thursday, December 10, 2020

December 10th, for decades, has been a day of firsts. In 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt became the first American to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (for his role in mediating the Russo-Japanese War). In 1931, Jane Addams was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize. In 1953, Hugh Hefner published the first Playboy magazine, and in 1958, the first domestic passenger jet flight took place in the U.S. when 111 passengers flew from New York to Miami on a National Airlines Boeing 707.

I wonder what will happen today that we’ll leave in the history books….
