Cabinet: Ron Brown

On this date in 1996, Ron Brown (the 30th Secretary of Commerce) and 34 other people died when the airplane they were flying in crashed while on approach to Cilipi Airport in Croatia. The 53-year-old Brown had joined the Cabinet with Bill Clinton's election. Prior to that, he had been the chairman of the National Democratic Committee, a lawyer, and had worked on several Presidential campaigns.
