FRANK SINATRA - 23-year-old Frank Sinatra (1938) was arrested in Bergen County, N.J. on charges of seduction and adultery. According to the FBI reports, "On the second and ninth days of November 1938 at the Borough of Lodi" and "under the promise of marriage" Sinatra "did then and there have sexual intercourse with the said complainant, who was then and there a single female of good repute." This, the charge stated, was "contrary and in violation of the revised statute of 1937." The charges were later dismissed when it was determined that the woman involved was married.

Bush, June 29, 1989 When the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Texas v. Johnson that burning the American flag was protected free speech, President Bush was so outraged that he proposed a constitutional amendment banning the burning or desecration of the American flag. Francis “Frank” Albert Sinatra wrote to the President “I applaud you long and loud for your reaction.” George H. W.

The nation's first comprehensive study of the preservation of sound recordings in the United States shows new digital audio recordings are at greater risk of being lost than older recordings. The study also found major parts of the nation's heritage in recorded sound already have been lost or can't be accessed by the public.(AP Photo)
