Vandaag precies 58 jaar geleden op 9 maart 1959 wordt Barbie, modepop van Mattel geïntroduceerd aan de kopers tijdens de “1959 Toy Fair”. Ruth Handler, één van de oprichters van Mattel, zag indertijd haar dochter Barbara spelen met papieren aankleedpoppen. Het bracht haar op het idee om zo’n pop in 3D te maken. Nadat Handler in 1956 op een reis door Zwitserland de pop Lilli aantreft, ontworpen door een Duitse fabrikant, besluit Mattel om de rechten te kopen, om een soortgelijke pop in de Verenigde Staten uit te brengen. De modeontwerpster Charlotte Johnson maakte de eerste kleertjes voor de pop. De pop kreeg de naam Barbie, vernoemd naar het koosnaampje van de dochter van Handler, omdat zij de inspiratiebron voor de pop was geweest. Barbie’s volledige naam is Barbie Millicent Roberts (naar het reclamebureau Carson and Roberts dat toentertijd een grote rol speelde in de promotie van Barbie. In dat jaar begon tevens de officiële massaproductie. Barbies mannelijke equivalent Ken, vernoemd naar Kenneth, de zoon van Ruth Handler, ontstond twee jaar later. De Afro-Amerikaanse pop Christie volgt in 1968 en in 1997 komt daar ook nog Becky bij, die in een rolstoel zit.)

(Op 18 maart 1959 tekent de president van de Verenigde Staten, Dwight D. Eisenhower een document waardoor Hawaii de vijftigste staat van de Verenigde Staten van Amerika wordt. De hoofdstad is Honolulu. De eilanden werden vermoedelijk in de 9de eeuw vanuit Tahiti gekoloniseerd door de Polynesiërs. De eerste Europeaan die de eilanden ontdekte was de zeevaarder James Cook in 1778, die ze de naam Sandwich-eilanden gaf. De aanval op Pearl Harbor (op het eiland O’ahu) op 7 december 1941 door het keizerlijke leger van Japan had als gevolg dat de Verenigde Staten zich gingen mengen in de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Het gebied bleef een Amerikaans Territorium tot 1959. Inmiddels was de oorspronkelijke bevolking een kleine minderheid in eigen land geworden en besloot men een Staat van de VS te worden, hetgeen gebeurde op 21 augustus van dat jaar.)

(Aan de Nederlandse vliegtuigenfabriek die na de eerste Wereldoorlog door Anthony Fokker met veel passie was opgebouwd komt in 1996 een dramatisch eind. Tegen de grote jongens uit de luchtvaart zoals Airbus en Boeing valt niet meer op te boksen. Het is het einde van de eigen vliegtuigbouw in Nederland. Maandag 22 januari 1996 hakt de Raad van Commissarissen van het moederbedrijf Daimler-Benz de knoop door. Daimler-Benz, dat zijn eigen uitbouw tot een wereldwijd vervoersconcern al eerder zag mislukken, stoot Fokker af. Op 23 januari 1996 wordt door de rechtbank te Amsterdam voorlopig surséance van betaling verleend. Op 15 maart 1996 gaat Fokker tenslotte failliet. Meer dan 5000 mensen verliezen hun baan.)
