Google has many issues of magazines online for your viewing/reading pleasure. It was a delight to me to find LIFE Magazine online. Check out the issues available here. and find your birthday issue. What was going on? You may learn some interesting history, some interesting things about LIFE.
In my birthday issue, Grace Kelly and the Prince of Monaco were married. I read about how Secretary of State John Foster Dulles risked atomic war three times - to keep the peace. How then Senate Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson had recovered from heart surgery. And about Anita Eckberg starring in War and Peace. WOW! :)
