Julian Baginski was a restaurateur from Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

One of the greatest sports disasters took place on February 15, 1961 when Sabena Air Lines Flight 548, en route from Idlewild (now Kennedy) Airport in New York to Brussels Belgium, crashed on approach to the airport in Brussels.

The entire US Figure Skating Team, fresh from their successful US Championships in Colorado Springs were on their way to Prague, Czechoslovakia for the World Championships. The youth onboard was enormous, a tremendous pool of fresh-faced talent ready to take over the successes of the US team during the previous year in the 1960 Olympics, many of these Olympians having moved on to professional careers.

On January 28, 2011 the entire team, as well as the coaches, officials, and family members of this team, were all inducted into the US Figure Skating Hall of Fame.
