March 31 Deaths in History

Patricia Sullivan

I started this with only women, to commemorate the last day of Women's History Month. But, darn it, there are some really important men who died on this day, too. So...

  • Eleanor of Aquitaine, 1204
  • Charlotte Bronte, 1855
  • Bella Abzug 1998
  • Terri Schiavo, 2005

  • Isaac Newton, 1727
  • J. Pierpont Morgan, 1913
  • Knute Rockne, 1931
  • Jesse Owens, 1980
  • Frank Perdue, 2005 (Don't miss this one -- use the printout version if ads obscure the story.)
