Deaths on August 2, 1921, 1922, 1923. Three major deaths on the same day over three years.

August the second is a day in the minds of those who are into opera, invention, and the American Presidency. For on that date in three consecutive years died one from each of these categories. I found it rather interesting that each of these individuals were very prominent in the field they represented. Since I am very interested in all three fields I am interested in each of them.

In Naples, Italy on August 2, 1921 died the greatest voice of a generation. The great operatic tenor Enrico Caruso.

In Canada on August 2, 1922 died one of the great inventors of the age. The inventor of the telephone Alexander Graham Bell.

In San Francisco, California  on August 2, 1923, Warren G. Harding the 29th President of the United States died

They always say things come in three's.  From 1921 to 1923 on August the second they sure did.
