American atheist Madalyn Evalyn Mays (later Madalyn Murray O'Hair) is born on Easter Sunday. She will become famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective) for filing a lawsuit against the Baltimore public schools over the daily prayers held every morning.
She loses repeatedly in the lower courts but she refuses to concede defeat and keeps appealing her case, right up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Her case will be Murray v. Curlett and it's combined with a similar case from Pennsylvania, Abington School District v. Schempp. This later case becomes the name by which the decision is known and in June, 1963, the Supreme Court rules 8-1 in favor or O'Hair and the Schempp family that required Bible reading and prayer in public schools is unconstitutional.
