It's time for another whimsical Tuesday Turnip search wherein I type a random phrase and we see what kind of interesting factoids "turn-up."
Today I typed in "making her the only" unearthing the following interesting factoids:
- Louisa Adams was born in London, England, making her the only US First Lady who was not born in America.
- In 1984, a commemorative postage stamp was issued in [Lilian Gilbreth's] honor, making her the only psychologist to receive this accolade.
- Alicia Ratay also ranks sixth in NCAA history with an .872 free throw percentage, making her the only player to appear in the top 10 on the all-time three-point and free throw charts.
- "She Bop" peaks at US#3, [Cyndi] Lauper's third gold disc in a row, and making her the only female artist to have her first three charted singles reach the Top 3.
- This week, Young & Rubicam named Ann Fudge as its chairman and CEO -- making her the only black, female chief executive of a major advertising agency.
- Patti [Page's] popularity was such that she was signed by NBC Television to star in "Scott Music Hall Presents Patti Page," a summer replacement series that gave birth to the twice-weekly syndicated "Oldsmobile Presents"¦Patti Page." The success of that modest enterprise, and the dominance of Patti on the hit lists with such other multi-million record sellers as "(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window," "Cross Over the Bridge," "I Went To Your Wedding, " "Changing Partners" and "Allegheny Moon," brought Patti to CBS-TV and the big budgeted weekly extravaganza, "The Big Record." When that concluded its run, ABC-TV brought Patti to its studios for "The Patti Page Show," thus making her the only performer to have shows bearing her name on all three major television networks.
