On this day in history: March 20, 1927 (Sunday)

In Mahad, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar began a crusade for the end of discrimination against the Dalit caste in India, known commonly as “Untouchables”.

Albert Snyder, a 44-year-old art editor for the magazine Boating, was brutally murdered at his home on 222nd Street in Queens, New York, and his wife, Ruth Snyder, was discovered bound and gagged. A few days later, police arrested Ruth and her lover, Judd Gray, for Albert’s murder. After their trial and conviction, Mrs. Snyder and Mr. Gray would both be executed on January 12, 1928.
