Maria Pia de Saxe-Coburg-Gotha-Braganca (b. 1907)
(Maria Pia bo bia bananafana fo fia fe fi mo mia, Pia.)
1868 - Gaston Leroux, French writer (d. 1927)
(I just like the name Gaston. It makes me go "Hoh Hoh Hoh" in a terrible French accent.)

Interesting Event or Two
1937 - Hindenburg disaster: The German zeppelin Hindenburg catches fire and is destroyed within a minute while attempting to dock at Lakehurst, New Jersey. Thirty-six people are killed.
(This is the one event I tend to work into conversations about birthdays.)
1954 - Roger Bannister becomes the first person to run the mile in under four minutes.

(No idea who St. John in Oil is, but he sounds fun.)
