1951

The year 1951 held many events that were to shape the future. Fast forward to the 21st century, these events of 1951 still hold a special place in the hearts of many. By this time, the war was over and it was time to rebuild.

1951

On the summer of 1951 June 14th, J. Presper Eckert and John Mauchly under Remington Rand unveiled the ‘UNIVAC Idigital computer. The two visionary engineers added to Charles Babbage’s basic principles that computers of today use. UNIVAC, which stands for the Universal Automatic Computer, became the most revolutionary computer of the time, which could do a thousand calculations per second and used five thousand vacuum tubes.

On July 8, Paris celebrated its existence spanning 2,000 years. Historians trace the founding date to be 250 B. C. thanks to a Gallic tribe called the Parisii who settled on an island on the Seine River that runs through the heart of Paris. The French capital has grown rapidly in its more than two millennia of existence. Paris is now a world leader in fashion, art, science and architecture.

By 1951, Sugar Ray Robinson went into the annals of history as being the best pound-for-pound middleweight boxer of all time. Sugar Ray beat Randy Turpin to win back the middleweight belt in front of over 60,000 fans at the Polo Grounds, New York City on September 12. Sugar Ray retired from boxing with 110 knockouts under his belt in 1965 and 1967; indicted in the International Boxing Hall of Fame.

The annals of history are the place where the thin line between legends and myths seem to be in constant competition. Time holds the answers to all that happens under the sun. We can learn a lot from the past, which holds the mistakes and lessons of our ancestors.
