Back in 1967, 73 year old Psychology Professor James Bedford became the first person to be cryogenically frozen in the hope that one day he would be woken up and brought back to life.
Robert Nelson, President of the Cryonics Society of California, and one of the three characters involved in his preservation, went on to document the process in We Froze the First Man. Still cryopreserved to this day Professor Bedford is stored in liquid nitrogen and has been moved five times since the big day.
In the cryonics community, the anniversary of Bedford's preservation is celebrated as Bedford Day. If you want to join them, we'd like to suggest you dock your cap to the frozen Professor with a Strawberry Frozen Daiquiri.
