In 1639 – The Great and General Court of Massachusetts – then and now the Massachusetts state legislature – decrees that the college they had authorized in 1636 be called Harvard. It is named after Rev John Harvard, who had given the college his library of 400 books and half of his estate. Research into the college’s name before becoming Harvard was inconclusive, but it appears not to have been formally named. Harvard would graduate its first class in 1642,
In 1918 – The Toronto Hockey Club – they did not have a formal nickname – wins the first NHL championship, defeating the Montreal Canadiens by outscoring them 10-7 in a two-game series. Toronto would later defeat the Seattle Millionaires of the PCHA 3 games to 2 for the Stanley Cup. Toronto was awarded the O’Brien Cup, given to the NHL champion until the NHL took possession of the Stanley Cup in 1927 and it was later awarded to the NHL’s Canadian Division champion and the playoff runner-up before being retired in 1950.
In 1965 – The Beatles are at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the first of two consecutive weeks with Eight Days a Week. It was the 14th of 35 Top 10 hits for the group and was their eighth of a Hot 100-record 20 #1 songs. The song also went to #1 in Canada, Belgium, and the Netherlands, and was not released as a single in Great Britain. The song was released in the United Kingdom on the album Beatles For Sale and in the US on the Beatles VI LP.
