The Daily Birthdays - October 17

When I was growing up, Pops always challenged us to "learn something new every day, and you will never stop growing." I pass that challenge on to you, along with this birthday list. Some are just for fun, some are intriguing, and some are actually worth learning about. Find someone you know little or nothing about, follow the link, and learn something new today!

As always, give me a shout in the comments section if you know of someone who should be added (for next year).

I must say I'm a little disappointed, son. You didn't include Candy Cummings, the inventor of the curve ball! Take a look at this link: http://www.baseballlibrary.com/baseballlibrary/ballplayers/C/Cummings_Candy.stm

Have a great day!

One of my favorite actresses has a birthday today: Irene Ryan, who played Granny on The Beverly Hillbillies. She was a big Broadway actress before joining Buddy Ebsen and the gang on TV.
