Timeline

1917 - In the year that Cecil M Smoak was born, Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions.

The October revolution resulted in Lenin and the Bolsheviks taking complete control.

1925 - He was merely 8 years old when in July, the Scopes Trial - often called the Scopes Monkey Trial - took place, prosecuting a substitute teacher for teaching evolution in school.

The teacher was found guilty and fined $100. An appeal to the Supreme Court of Tennessee upheld the law but overturned the guilty verdict.

He even has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "What's up, Doc?"

1979 - When he was 62 years old, on November 4th, Iranian militant students seized the US embassy in Teheran and held 52 American citizens and diplomats hostage for 444 days. They were released at the end of the inauguration speech of the newly elected Ronald Reagan.
