1936: Anthony Kennedy, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, was born in Sacramento, California.

1904: Library of Congress: According to some accounts, Charles E. Menches conceived the idea of filling a pastry cone with two scoops of ice-cream and thereby invented the ice-cream cone. He is one of several claimants to that honor: Ernest Hamwi, Abe Doumar, Albert and Nick Kabbaz, Arnold Fornachou, and David Avayou all have been touted as the inventor(s) of the first edible cone. Interestingly, these individuals have in common the fact that they all made or sold confections at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition, known as the St. Louis World's Fair. It is from the time of the Fair that the edible "cornucopia," a cone made from a rolled waffle, vaulted into popularity in the United States.
