1912: Comedian and country singer Minnie Pearl is born under the birth name Sarah Ophelia Colley in Centerville, Tennessee. Pearl appeared at the Grand Ole Opry for more than 50 years and on the television show "Hee Haw," becoming famous for gentle satire of southern and hillbilly culture, wearing a hat with a price tag hanging from it and bellowing her catch phrase "How-w-w-DEE-E-E-E!" She died of complications from a stroke at the age of 83 on March 4, 1996.
