In this series, I will look at random days of each month to inform readers about important events that occurred on that exact day in years prior.

For this “On This Day” we are taking a look at history on March 11.

1909: The first gold medal to a perfect score bowler was awarded to A.C. Jellison by the American Bowling Congress.

1993: Janet Reno was unanimously confirmed by the US Senate to become the first female Attorney General.

2002: Two columns of light were pointed towards the sky, from the ground, in New York as a temporary memorial of the lives lost on Sep. 11, 2002.
