Famous Last Facts Introduction

About some famous lasts as opposed to famous firsts, major final things in history.


Everyone is familiar with well-known first facts--the first automobile accident, the first alarm clock, the first college, the first demonstration of anesthesia. Books abound on firsts, and among the best are Famous First Facts by Joseph Nathan Kane and The Book of Firsts by Patrick Robertson. In the rush for firsts, the best of lasts have been overlooked. Who was the last soldier shot to death in W. W.I? When was the last great auk on earth killed? When did Jesse James stage his last holdup? For your reference and pleasure, the People's Almanac 2 presents an exclusive first--Famous Last Facts. Incidentally, if you know of any other great lasts, send them to us at our address given on the last page of Chapter 32.
