1872 - At the age of just 3 years old, Arthur was alive when on March 1st, Yellowstone National Park became the first national park in the U.S. and perhaps the world's first national park.

An unknown Boy Scout helped him find his way out, declining a tip (he said that he was a Boy Scout and was doing his good deed for the day).

Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.
