The Post Office is born, World War II gets its first flying ace, John Glenn becomes the first American to orbit the Earth, and a fire at a Great White concert leaves 100 dead, all on this day.

OTD February 20 - Dick York
7 / 44
ABC Television

1992: Actor Dick York, best remembered for his role as the first Darrin Stephens on the sitcom "Bewitched," dies from complications of emphysema at the age of 63 in East Grand Rapids, Mich. A debilitating back injury he suffered in 1959 eventually forced York to give up his "Bewitched" role and he spent the rest of his life fighting not only back pain but also an addiction to prescription pain killers.
