Allan Rohan Crite, painter, born.
"To keep her six-year old busy while she wrote poetry, a young mother from Boston's Columbus Avenue gave her son art supplies and encouraged him to draw. A few year's later, his teacher, Miss Brady, recognized the young boy's talents and suggested he attend the Children's Art School offered at that time by the Museum of Fine Arts. The boy, who grew to become internationally known artist Allan Rohan Crite credits these two women, a mother and a teacher, as the strongest influences in establishing his artistic career.
