The great author John Steinbeck was born on this date in 1902. In Cannery Row he wrote:

A man with a beard was always a little suspect anyway. You couldn't say you wore a beard because you liked a beard. People didn't like you for telling the truth. You had to say you had a scar so you couldn't shave.
