Frequented Fay's Theater in Providence in the 1920's and saw famous actors perform live there including George M. Cohan, Al Jolson and others. Also recounted the thrill of seeing silent movies with Mary Pickford, and other great movies by D.W. Griffith. Recalled the World War 1 era in Providence and told me of seeing men drafted into the army right on the spot if they were not working. My Aunt also told me food riots in Providence on Federal Hill around 1918 or 1919. Survived the Spanish Flu epidemic but her father Cosimo Lamantia did not and died 3 days after getting the flu, in March 1919. Traveled to New York via train, once in the 1930's, once again in 1956 when I was 9 and once in 1960 when I was 13 where we stayed at either the Commodore hotel or the Abbot, I think it was the Abbot, and we saw many of the usual tourist sights. She also came with us to Boston in 1966 for a one day visit to see the Prudential center.

1903 - 1968 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Anna's lifetime

In 1903, in the year that Anna Lamantia was born, the silent film, The Great Train Robbery opened. Although it was filmed in Milltown, New Jersey, it was a Western. Twelve minutes long, the film used a lot of innovative techniques - some scenes were hand colored and composite editing, on-location shooting, and frequent camera movement were used. Its budget was $150 (about $4000 currently) and was the most popular film until 1915 when Birth of a Nation was released.

In 1910, she was only 7 years old when Angel Island, which is in San Francisco Bay, became the immigration center for Asians entering U.S. It was often referred to as "The Ellis Island of the West". Due to restrictive laws against Chinese immigration, many immigrants spent years on the island.

In 1922, by the time she was 19 years old, the Reparations Commission assessed German liability for World War 1 at 132 billion gold marks (over $32 billion U.S. dollars at the time). This led to hyperinflation in Germany and created the political and social atmosphere in which Hitler was able to rise to power.

In 1953, at the age of 50 years old, Anna was alive when on July 27th, the Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. The Armistice was to last until "a final peaceful settlement is achieved". No peaceful settlement has ever been agreed upon.

In 1968, in the year of Anna Lamantia's passing, on April 4th, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the civil rights leader, was shot and killed by an assassin in Memphis. James Earl Ray was apprehended and plead guilty to shooting Dr. King. Ray died in jail in 1998.
