It’s rare that Taft has competition in the facial hair department … From the description:
William Howard Taft (U.S. president 1909-1913) and Charles H. Grosvenor sit in front of the Grosvenor house. 

Konneker Alumni Center houses the Alumni Association. Built for General Charles H. Grosvenor, it was designed by his cousin Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, and is part of the Ohio University Campus Green Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house remained in the family for approx. 50 years until descendant Constance Leete donated it to the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. The church leased it to OU until Konneker donated the funds for OU to purchase it in 1980.

    Satoshi Kon - Editing Space & Time

    Tony Zhou : “Four years after his passing, we still haven’t quite caught up to Satoshi Kon, one of the great visionaries of modern film. In just four features and one TV series, he developed a unique style of editing that distorted and warped space and time. Join me in honoring the greatest Japanese animator not named Miyazaki.”

Nixon and Khrushchev’s Kitchen Debates
On this day in 1959, Vice President Richard Nixon and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev met for the opening of the American National Exhibition in Moscow. 
As Nixon led Khrushchev through the model house they began a series of impromptu debates (mainly held in the model kitchen), on capitalism and communism.  To debate such ideas both leaders used examples of household appliances to better stress their arguments.  Nixon’s performance in the “Kitchen Debate” further raised his stature back in the United States.
In this photograph we have Nixon and Khrushchev debating in front of the now famous model kitchen.  To the right of Nixon is future Soviet General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev.  7/24/59.

    My people chose to send me to Wabash College, at Crawfordsville, Indiana. It was staid, as it is yet. An old-fashioned institution, founded for the purpose of giving to a young man, if possible, what I am pleased to call a cultural education; that is, to train him in those studies and direct his mind along those lines which will give to him powers to reason accurately, or practically so, upon the great problems of life, and to be philosophic under all the misfortunes that may come to him. About Wabash I venture to say what Webster said of Dartmouth, in the great case wherein he won his fame, that it is a small college, but there are those of us who love it.

    Thomas Riley Marsall (1854-1925), VP of US (1913-1921), Wabash College Class of 1873
