September 3 in history:
England’s King Richard the 1st, the Lionheart, was crowned on September 3rd, 1189. Ironically, Richard primarily spoke French, and spent little time in England during his 10 years on the throne.
The United States formally separated from England with the signing of the Treaty of Paris on this date in 1783, officially ending the American Revolution. John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were among the signers for the U.S.
“Signing in” on a blackboard was the way contestants made their entrance on the long-running game show “What’s My Line?” The original Sunday night version of “Line” ended its 17-year run on CBS on September 3rd, 1967. A daily syndicated version was launched a year later.
Actress and singer Kitty Carlisle Hart occasionally appeared as a panelist on “What’s My Line?”, but was more famous as a regular panel member on “To Tell the Truth.” She was born on this date in 1910.
