January 13. In 1854, the accordion was patented. In 1863, the chenille yarn-making machine was patented. In 1928, TV was demonstrated for the first time. In 1898, Emile Zola published his “J’accuse” letter, accusing the French government of framing Alfred Dreyfus for sabotage. (Dreyfus was exonerated in 1906.) In 1938, the Church of England accepted the theory of evolution, displaying brain activity. In 1942, Henry Ford patented the plastic car made partially of soybeans and hemp. In 1962, Wilt Chamberlain scored 73 points against Chicago. In 1966, Robert C. Weaver became the first African-American Cabinet member (HUD) under President Johnson.
