  • The Retro Blog, 'It's a Big Day for Cryonicists': 'Happy Bedford Day, everybody. On January 12th, 1967, University of California psychology professor James Bedford became the first man to have his body cryogenically frozen. As the first man to be preserved, the bill was paid by the Life Extension Society. He also earned the awesome title of “cryonaut,�? the term given to cryogenically preserved individuals. I like it. It sounds far more adventurous than what it actually describes.'
