Hanmi Financial's operating entity, Hanmi Bank, was incorporated in August 1981, beginning what would be an impressive rise within Los Angeles's Korean-American business community. The bank officially began business more than a year later, receiving its license by the California Department of Financial Institutions in December 1982. Hanmi Bank opened on Olympic Boulevard, to the southeast of Koreatown, a Los Angeles community that served as the base for area's Korean-American community. By the end of the 20th century, Los Angeles's Korean-American community represented a substantial portion of the region's population, numbering 800,000 persons. Hanmi Bank was established to assist and to benefit from the growth of the large, yet closely-knit Korean enclave. Hanmi developed a reputation in commercial and small-business lending, but it would take years before its lending abilities were sufficient to attract widespread recognition.
The Bronx, 1981 Crime on the subway became so common that, starting in June 1985, at least one police officer rode every train between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. as part of an effort to restore public confidence in the transit system. | Martha Cooper

Roosevelt makes another attempt to contact the JSA with no luck. Meanwhile, in New York City, Sandman, Starman, and Johnny Thunder (with his personal Thunderbolt), are attacked at Wes Dodds' penthouse apartment, by the not-yet-notorious Sky Pirate. Johnny gets knocked out right away, so the T-bolt fades out, but Ted and Wes smack the hell out of the glazey-eyed, gray-uniformed crew of "mindless robot-men." But Sky Pirate has a gas gun which knocks them both out.
Series: I. Historical Materials Arrangement: Alphabetical by folder title Date Range: 1967-1981 Volume: 2.8 cubic feet Boxes: 1-3 Geographic coverage: United States Type of documents: Correspondence, memos, reports, minutes Correspondents: Hudson Taylor Armerding, Joseph Armisano, John Corts, John Dettoni, Lois Ferm, Leighton Ford. Billy Graham, Philip Hammer, Donald Hoke, Timothy L. Smith, Ted W. Ward, Stephanie Wills Subjects: Origins and development of the Billy Graham Center, Wheaton College, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Christian evangelism, preaching, North American Protestant Evangelicalism Notes: This series consists of all the materials in Collection 3 before the collection was rearranged to document the ongoing development of the Center as well as its early history. Almost all the material in this collection is from 1981 or earlier and is concerned largely with the BGC planning committee, dating ca. 1970 to 1973, records of the three official ceremonies involving construction of the building (ground breaking, cornerstone laying, and dedication), and records of a workshop sponsored by the BGC in 1981. Exceptional items: Folder 2-13 contains a volume entitled "Billy Graham Center Handbook," which was prepared by BGC director Don Hoke just prior to his leaving the BGC staff. In it, Hoke assembled a history of the BGC, and of the individual divisions (archives, library, and museum). For each of these, Hoke described the present status of the work and his recommendations for the future. Also discussed were various outreach programs of the BGC, fund-raising, public relations, and budget.
This collection includes material from the summer 1981; "Preaching for Commitment"workshop, which spanned two weeks, and offered to participants the opportunity to hear lectureson the subject and do research in BGC holdings in the area of preaching. Dr. David Maclagan,pastor of St. John's Church, Largs, Ayrshire, Scotland, was the main speaker at the workshop. Video tapes V12 through V24 are sessions of this workshop; see Location Records for detailsand other speakers' names.
The materials in this collection were in part deposited in the Billy Graham Center Archives by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in June 1975, in part given by private individuals between October 1979 and December 1981, and by the Center administration and departments in annual additions from 1983 onward.
In 1981 Rick Springfield gained a large audience in two mediums; he watched his smash hit single "Jessie's Girl" race up the charts from the vantage point of his newly landed spot as a regular on the popular television soap opera General Hospital. The pull of Springfield's musical success proved stronger than that of his soap career, however, and he left the show to follow up "Jessie's Girl" with spirited hits like "Don't Talk to Strangers" and "Affair of the Heart." As David Wild summed up in a Rolling Stone review, "Over the years [Springfield has] come up with some delectable ear candy."
Though eventually dropped by Universal, Springfield was adequately consoled when RCA records, after listening to his demos, signed him to a contract in 1980. While he was recording what would become Working Class Dog, a casting director for General Hospital signed Springfield to play the role of Dr. Noah Drake, a young, eligible physician, and he began appearing on the show in 1981. The soap's audience found Springfield very appealing; he quickly became one of its most popular cast members. Then "Jessie's Girl," a song based on Springfield's experience of coveting a friend's love interest, was released as Working Class Dog' s first single. The song won him a Grammy for best male rock vocal. Another cut from the album, "I've Done Everything for You," also became a smash. Suddenly, Springfield had to balance filming with concert appearances.
