1941 World Events

Add Anna's birthday or the date she died to see a list of historic events that occurred during Anna's lifetime.

In 1826, on July 4th, former US Presidents Thomas Jefferson and John Adams both died. It was the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson died a few hours before Adams. Adams, unaware of Jefferson's death - who was both a friend and a rival - said as he was dying ""Thomas Jefferson survives."

In 1832, on October 20th, the Chickasaw nation signed the Pontotoc Creek Treaty with the United States. The Treaty ceded 6,283,804 million acres of Chickasaw land in Mississippi to the U.S. In return, the Chickasaw were supposed to receive all proceeds of sales of the land by the federal government to private owners, along with expenses for relocation and food and supplies for one year and an equal amount of land west of the Mississippi. The area ceded included the entire northern one-sixth of the state of Mississippi.

In 1861, The Royal Seminary (Sweden) became the first institute of its kind in Sweden to be open to women, allowing women to obtain a teaching degree.

In 1908, a 7.1 earthquake and the resulting tsunami killed 70,000 to 100,000 people in southern Italy and Sicily. The earthquake, lasting 30 to 40 seconds, occurred in the Strait of Messina which was between the region of Calabria (at the "toe" of Italy) and the island of Sicily and destruction from it occurred in a 186 mile radius. It was the most destructive earthquake ever to hit Europe.

In 1941, in the year of Anna Evelyn Matthews's passing, on June 25th, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, prohibiting racial discrimination in the defense industry. EO 8802 was the first federal action to prohibit employment discrimination - without prejudice as to "race, creed, color, or national origin" - in the U.S. Civil Rights groups had planned a march on Washington D.C. to protest for equal rights but with the signing of the Order, they canceled the March.
