June 5, 1968: Senator Robert F. Kennedy is Shot

On this day in 1968, New York Senator Robert “Bobby” Kennedy was shot by an assassin at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

Moments after winning the California and South Dakota primary elections, Sen. Kennedy was shot as he walked through the Ambassador Hotel. The 42-year-old presidential hopeful died hours later at Good Samaritan Hospital in L.A.

His tragic death came only four and a half years after his brother President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas. Explore American Experience’s biography of Robert. F. Kennedy to learn more

On this day in 2004, Ronald Reagan lost his nearly ten-year battle with Alzheimer’s Disease.  President Reagan informed the nation of his condition in November of 1994. In a candid, handwritten letter he wrote:

“At the moment, I feel just fine… Unfortunately, as Alzheimer’s Disease progresses, the family often bears a heavy burden.  I only wish there was some way I could spare Nancy from the painful experience.”

In 1995, Ronald and Nancy Reagan established an institute dedicated to the study of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Ronald Reagan passed away at home in California at the age of 93.

“My work is emotionally autobiographical. It has no relationship to the actual events of my life, but it reflects the emotional currents of my life. I try to work every day because you have no refuge but writing. When you’re going through a period of unhappiness, a broken love affair, the death of someone you love, or some other disorder in your life, then you have no refuge but writing.”
