The Loch Ness Monster smiles for the camera -- sort of, Ellis Island closes, actor William Holden passes away, and Madonna releases "Like a Virgin," all on this day.

National Archives & Records Administration

1993: Political aide and businessman H. R. Haldeman, best known for his service as White House chief of staff to President Richard Nixon and his consequent involvement in the Watergate scandal, dies of abdominal cancer at age 67 in Santa Barbara, California. His role in the Watergate cover-up led to his resignation from government and eventual conviction of conspiracy and obstruction of justice. He served 18 months in prison and became a successful businessman upon his release up until his death.
