On #ThisDayinHistory 1990, the largest-ever Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered was found. It was fossil hunter Susan Hendrickson who discovered three huge bones jutting out of a cliff near Faith, South Dakota #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.12: They turned out to be part of, a 65 million-year-old specimen dubbed Sue, after its discoverer.
Amazingly, Sue’s skeleton was over 90 percent complete, and the bones were extremely well-preserved.

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6812 In October 1997, Chicago’s Field Museum purchased Sue at public auction at Sotheby’s in New York City for $8.36 million, financed in part by the McDonald’s and Disney corporations.
Sue’s skeleton went on display at the Field Museum in May 2000.
The tremendous T.rex skeleton–13 feet high at the hips and 42 feet long from head to toe–is displayed in one of the museum’s main halls. Another exhibit gives viewers a close-up view of Sue’s five foot-long, 2,000-pound skull with its 58 teeth, some as long as a human forearm. Sue’s extraordinarily well-preserved bones have allowed scientists to determine many things about the life of T.rex. They have determined that the carnivorous dinosaur had an incredible sense of smell, as the olfactory bulbs were each bigger than the cerebrum, the thinking part of the brain. In addition, Sue was the first T.rex skeleton to be discovered with a wishbone, a crucial discovery that provided support for scientists’ theory that birds are a type of living dinosaur.
One thing that remains unknown is Sue’s actual gender; to determine this, scientists would have to compare many more T.rex skeletons than the 22 that have been found so far. #Sue #Trex #dinosaur #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 2014, actress Lauren Bacall passed away in New York City. She shot to fame in her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not.” #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.12: She shot to fame in her debut film, 1944’s “To Have and Have Not.” In a career that spanned nearly 70 years, Bacall made more than 40 films, including “The Big Sleep,” “How to Marry a Millionaire” and “The Mirror Has Two Faces.” She was born Betty Joan Perske but began using the last name Bacal, part of her mother’s maiden name, after her parents divorced and Howard Hawks, who directed Bacall’s big-screen debut, dubbed her Lauren #AceHistoryDesk

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6810 During the making of her debut film—in which Bacall famously utters the line: “You know how to whistle, don’t you, Steve? You just put your lips together and blow”—she and the then-married Bogart, who was more than twice her age began an affair. Married in 1945, Bogart and Bacall became one of Hollywood’s iconic couples and made three more films together. Her marriage to Bogart ended when the actor died of cancer in 1957.

Despite her achievements, Bacall realized the public likely would always associate her with Bogart. As she said in a 1999 Newsday interview: “I’ll never get away from him. I accept that. He was the emotional love of my life, but I think I’ve accomplished quite a bit on my own.” #LaurenBacall #RIP #filmhistory #AceHistoryNews
