Timeline

1910 - In the year that Casper Polanki was born, 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.

1926 - By the time he was 16 years old, on November 15th, NBC was founded. It was the U.S.'s first major broadcast network.

1934 - By the time he was 24 years old, on November 11th 1933, an extremely strong dust storm hit South Dakota, stripping topsoil. Other strong dust storms had occurred during 1933.
