9 March

And so to the 9th of March, a very lucky day as the first documented discovery of gold in California occurred in 1842, at Rancho San Francisco, six years before the California Gold Rush. Also on this day, in 1908, Inter Milan was founded following a split from the Milan Cricket and Football Club. Finally, in 1959, the Barbie doll made her début at the American International Toy Fair in New York.

Famous people born on this day include Bill Beaumont, English rugby player, born 1952; Juliette Binoche, French actress, born 1964, and Martin Johnson, English rugby player, born 1970.
