Frederick March 100 -- August 31, 2022

Great American actor Frederick March was born 125 years ago today, on 31-August-1897. He was a veteran of World War One. He won the Oscar and the Tony for Best Actor twice each. In college he belonged to a inter-fraternity organization called the Ku Klux Klan, which was not related to the domestic terrorist organization. This led to many misunderstandings. Eventually, the University of Wisconsin–Madison removed his name from its theater. He was a proponent of social justice and civil rights for his whole life.
