Encyclopædia Britannica presents people and events from this day in history:

Nikita Khrushchev: Biography of the Day

Nikita Khrushchev

"There were those who loved him, there were those who hated him, but there were few who would pass him by without looking in his direction."

Sergey Khrushchev, eulogizing his father, Nikita, at his funeral, 1971

Soviet Premier Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev, born this day in 1894, guided the U.S.S.R. (and the communist movement) out from under the shadow of former premier Joseph Stalin and into closer orbit with the capitalist West.

Canada Act proclaimed: 17 April 1982 - This Day in History

The Canada Act, also known as the Constitution Act, took effect on this day in 1982, establishing certain individual rights, preserving parliamentary supremacy, and making Canada a wholly independent, fully sovereign state.
