On May 16, 1963, Davis visited Browns owner Art Modell at his office.  His neck visibly swollen, Davis apologized for his medical expenses and promised to make a comeback.  Two days later, at age 23, he died.

Tributes poured in.  President John Kennedy called Davis “an outstanding young man of great character” and “an inspiration to the young people of this country.”  Davis’s Syracuse coach, Ben Schwartzwalder, said, “When you talk about Ernie Davis, you’re treading on hallowed ground.  We always thought he had a halo around him, and now we know he has.”

In 1972, Smith won Wimbledon wearing his own Stan Smiths, but there’s no way he could have predicted the cult-like fashion staple the shoe has become.

Stan Smiths have been a hit on the runway and in music.

“The first time I heard I was in a rap song my daughter, who was about 13 at the time, she said, ‘Dad, you’re famous, Jay Z has you in a rap song,'” Smith said. “I said, ‘Oh, really? Who’s Jay Z?'”

But behind the scenes she struggled with mood swings, drug and alcohol abuse, and impulsive behavior before being diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the early 1980s. Duke became a tireless mental health advocate and, after three failed marriages, found love and stability with her fourth husband. Their union lasted 30 years until her death in 2016.
