Good morning. Today is the 300th day of the year. On this day in 1841, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle was founded by Poughkeepsie-born printer Isaac Van Anden, who sold it to a group of investors in 1870. For many years, its officers were at 28 Old Fulton St., now the site of the Eagle Warehouse. It later moved to Washington Street.
Well-known people who were born today include actor James Pickens, game show host Pat Sajak (“Wheel of Fortune”), Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Olympic figure skater Sasha Cohen.
