What happened in 1957?

Whenever I buy an item that I don’t know a lot about, I do a little research on both the internet and in reference books that I have around the house to see what I can find out about the item.  There are times that I run across fun bits of information about other items.

Here’s some of what I ran across for the year 1957:

January 6th—Elvis Presley appears on THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW for the 3rd and final time.  This broadcast is known for Elvis being only shot from the waist up.

January 13th—Wham-O produces the first Frisbee.

September 4th—this is when the Ford Motor Company introduced the Edsel.  When the car was released, Ford proclaimed September 4th as “E-day”.

October 12—on this day, the famous Christmas book HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! By Dr. Seuss is published.

This is just a handful of all the things that happened in 1957.  What have you run across?
