In 1906, by the time he was just 13 years old, English biochemist Frederick Hopkins concluded that vitamins are essential to the human body and that a lack of vitamins caused scurvy and rickets.

In 1913, by the time he was 20 years old, Woodrow Wilson became the 28th President of the United States in March.

A Democrat, he led the U.S. during World War I and championed the League of Nations.

In 1964, he was 71 years old when on June 11th, activist Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment in South Africa for conspiring to overthrow the state (because of his numerous anti-apartheid activities). He served 27 years in prison.
