Today, we say Happy Birthday to the original man behind “Jeopardy!” — Art Fleming.

Born on May 1, 1924, Fleming is remembered for being the host of the first version of the television game show “Jeopardy!,” which aired on NBC from 1964 until 1975.

He was born to parents William and Marie Fazzin, who immigrated to New York City from Austria. In high school, Fleming was a successful athlete on his high schools’ football team. He later attended Colgate and Cornell Universities, where he had a spot on the football and water polo teams at both colleges.
