OMB's Tim Young

It is Tim Young’s birthday today.

Until recently, Young was deputy administrator for e-government and information technology. That job has since been made a career appointment being filled by Mike Howell, who came to the post from the Interior Department, where he had been serving as the CIO. Young is still at OMB — although we hear he is looking for a private sector job.

So on this date in history:

* In 1792, The French National Convention voted to abolish the monarchy.
* In 1937, “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien was published.
* In 1970, “NFL Monday Night Football” debuted on ABC.

Young shares this birthday with:
* JR Ewing actor Larry Hagman (77-years-old)
* Former CIA director James Woolsey (67)
* Author Stephen King (61)
* Actor Bill Murray (58)
* and singer Faith Hill (41)

Historical figures born on this date:
* American statesman Henry Stimson (9/21/1867 – 10/20/1950… You can actually read the NYT obit of Stimson.)
* Science fiction writer H.G. Welles (9/21/1866 – 8/13/1946… read more about Welles on PRI’s Writer’s Almanac with Garrison Keilor.)

Happy birthday to Tim!
