Tuesday, August 14, 1934

Sure hot today. Didn't do much. Straightened up the house a little. Didn't do washing today.

Josip Broz Tito (7 May 1892 - 4 May 1980)
First President of Yugoslavia
In office 14 January 1953 – 4 May 1980

 A Yugoslav revolutionary and statesman, serving in various roles from 1945 until his death in 1980, Tito's presidency has been criticized as authoritarian. Due to his successful economic and diplomatic policies, Tito was seen by most as a benevolent dictator and was a popular public figure both in Yugoslavia and abroad. His internal policies successfully maintained the peaceful coexistence of the nations of the Yugoslav federation.
