US Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren was born
on March 19, 1891, in Los Angeles, California. He led the Court
during a critical period of social change in the 1950s and 1960s and
is perhaps best known for his Opinion in Brown v.
Board of Education. Learn more
about Earl Warren from the Supreme Court
Historical Society, and hear
him deliver the Landon Lecture at Kansas State
University in 1970, shortly after his retirement, on the theme "The
Alternative is Chaos."
On March 19, 1972, India and Bangladesh signed a
of Friendship, Cooperation, and Peace for twenty-five
years. The treaty recognized the independence of Bangladesh by India
at the conclusion of Bangladesh's war of independence from Pakistan.
The treaty expired in 1997 without renewal.
