The Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop – were the embodiment of cool for a short period of time in the late 1950s and very early 1960s. Their hipster talk, bravado, machismo and libertine lifestyle were an enormous influence on their times. Although the five of them were only together as a group for relatively short period of time, their influence far outlasts their duration. In this fun and fast moving presentation, Barry Bradford will look at the individual history and collective importance of the members of the Rat Pack.

By 1948, World War II had ended and the Cold War had begun. The Allied sectors of war-weary West Berlin lay 100 miles inside the Iron Curtain. They were totally dependent on food and supplies trucked in by US and other friendly forces. In June, the Soviets blockaded the city with the intention of starving West Berliners out of their dependence on the West and into the Soviet bloc. They were foiled, however, by the  efforts of American and British pilots who for 13 months airlifted almost five billion tons of supplies to the city. Along with the necessities were little parachutes of candy, provided secretly by the pilots, that floated down to the German  children. Joyce Haworth will tell the story of the Berlin Airlift, one of finest hours in American history, based on the book The Candy Bombers by Andrei Cherney.
