    Death Anniversary Thread

    Dmitri Mendeleev died on this day 116 years ago, aged 72. In 1869, Mendeleev attempted to organize the chemical elements by arranging them in increasing atomic weight, with those with recurrent properties being placed horizontally next to each other. At the time, 63 elements had been discovered (this has since risen to 118, and there may be many others but they haven't been synthesized). Mendeleev hypothesized that some inconsistencies were the result of said undiscovered elements, and through the next two years, made revised versions that added some hypothetical elements. Mendeleev was very close with some of his predictions- for example, "eka-silicon" had an atomic weight of 72, and when germanium (the element below silicon) was discovered in 1886, it was found to have an atomic weight of 72.63. There exists a myth that in 1894, Mendeleev was responsible for the 40% alcohol standard in vodka- this has been disproven, and it was actually the Russian government who introduced it in 1843. Mendeleev died six days before his 73rd birthday from the flu. In 1955, an atom with 101 protons was successfully synthesized for the first time, and the new element was named "mendelevium" in his honor.

    John Vernon died on this day 18 years ago, aged 72. Vernon was born with the name Adolphus Agopsowicz. In 1956, he made his acting debut as the voice of Big Brother in Michael Anderson's version of 1984, and would star on Broadway during the 1960s. In 1971, Vernon made his breakout role as the mayor in the first Dirty Harry movie, and would star as Dean Wormer in Animal House in 1978. Vernon would often be typecast as school authority figures, ranging from principals (ex. Fuzz Bucket, Duckman, and Baby Huey's Great Easter Adventure) to another dean- that being Dean Toadblatt (a Dumbledore parody) in The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy... who starred in a very progressive scene for a kid's show in 2005: As mentioned with the Duckman and Billy and Mandy examples, Vernon was also a voice actor, with one of his first roles being Iron Man in the 1966 Marvel Super Heroes show. Other shows he did work for included Batman: The Animated Series and Pinky and the Brain, and his final posthumous role was in the box-office nuke Delgo.

    AA Milne died on this day 67 years ago, aged 74. Milne was a playwright and novelist early in his career. When his son Christopher was born in 1920, he began to make children's books for him to read. One of these was 1924's When We Were Very Young, a collection of poems- one of them, "Teddy Bear", featured a teddy bear called Edward. In 1926, Milne took the character, and renamed him Winnie-the-Pooh, after a black bear in the London Zoo and a friend's pet swan. Supporting characters consisted of Christopher's other plushies, such as a tiger (Tigger), a donkey (Eeyore) and a kangaroo (Kanga), and the only human character, Christopher Robin- obviously an insertion of Christopher himself. Disney would buy film rights to the books in 1961. Christopher would eventually grow up to believe that his father exploited his childhood for money, and became estranged from his parents.

    Patty Andrews died on this day 10 years ago, aged 94. Patty was the youngest of the Andrews Sisters, with the child band being formed in 1925 with her older sisters LaVerne and Maxene. Patty was the lead singer. Their first hit came in 1937 with their version of the Yiddish-originated song "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon". The group was at its peak in World War II, with "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" being released months before Pearl Harbor, and would often entertain Allied forces overseas. This song would later be made into a notable cover by Bette Midler in 1973, and would be interpolated by Christina Aguilera for her 2007 song "Candyman". They would continue to see success into the 1950s, but declined during the '60s. During that time, they would make covers of popular songs (such as Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" and Peter, Paul and Mary's "Puff, The Magic Dragon"). LaVerne died in 1967, and the group disbanded the following year when Maxene began to teach acting at Tahoe College. They would regroup one more time for the 1974 Broadway musical Over Here! (with John Travolta). The tour ended up being cancelled due to a pay dispute between the Andrews Sisters and the producers. Patty and Maxene then grew further apart from each other, only seldomly seeing each other, before Maxene died in 1995- Patty was unable to attend her memorial services because her husband had suffered a fall around that time. Patty appeared on the DeathList three consecutive times, from 2011 to 2013.
