1905 - In the year that Catalina Valdes was born, the Industrial Workers of the World was founded. An international labor union founded in Chicago, it was most often referred to as the "Wobblies" and had ties to the socialist movement and the anarchist movement. At its peak, it had 150,000 members.

1915 - By the time she was only 10 years old, the Germans first used poison gas as a weapon at the second Battle of Ypres during World War I.

Subsequently, the French and British - as well as the United States when they entered World War 1 - developed and used lethal gas in war.

1916 - By the time she was just 11 years old, in June, the U.S. Congress authorized a plan to expand the armed forces over the next five years. Called the National Defense Act of 1916, the national law expanded the National Guard and Army (the Army added an aviation unit), created the Reserves, and gave the President expanded authority to federalize the National Guard. It also allowed the government to stockpile, in advance, materiel to be used in wartime.
