Neil Armstrong: First man on the moon

Neil Armstrong, right, the first man to step foot on the moon, gestures as President Bill Clinton looks on during a White House ceremony celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Apollo 11th flight to the Moon, Wednesday, July 20, 1994, Washington, D.C. Twenty-five-years ago, two men from Earth, bundled like space aliens, set foot on the moon for the first time and planted the American flag. (AP Photo/Marcy Nighswander)

About this blog

"Tales from the Morgue" is a way for the Star to share stories from the treasure trove of information held in its old files.

Johanna Eubank, aka the Morgue Lady, was a research assistant in the Star Library — also known as News and Research Services — for 18 years before becoming an online content producer. She has had her share of sneezing fits after digging into dusty old files, so she's sure to find a few old stories to re-examine.
