9780071489034: Chase's Calendar of Events 2008 w/CD-Rom

“The bible of special occasions.”--Los Angeles Times

12,500 entries. 194 countries. 365 days. 50 years and counting!

From his years as a newspaper librarian William D. Chase knew of the need for a single reference source for calendar dates and for authoritative and current information about various observances throughout the year. William and his brother, Harrison, decided to create such a reference themselves. They set to work collecting, compiling, verifying, editing and proofreading the events that would make up the first Chase's Calendar of Events.

Fifty years later, Chase's Calendar of Events is still the most comprehensive and authoritative reference available on special events, holidays, federal and state observances, historic anniversaries and more.

Chase's starts its next fifty years with:

  • Milestones such as Quebec's 400th founding anniversary, Minnesota's statehood sesquicentennial and NASA's 50th birthday.
  • New birthdays such as literary lion and Nobel laureate Orhan Pamuk, soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, stars from TV's “Heroes” and “Ugly Betty” and newly elected heads of state worldwide.
  • Events from the Games of the XXIX Olympiad at Beijing, China, the Dakar Rally and Euro 2008 in Austria/Switzerland to the US's major party conventions and presidential election.
