April 7, 1959

On this day in 1959, Buddy Holly’s glasses were discovered as the snow melted in Mason City, Iowa.

They were recovered from the plane crash that killed Holly, the Big Bopper and Richie Valens two months prior. The glasses were turned in to police, where they sat until 1980 until a sheriff found them and they were finally returned to Holly’s widow.
