1970 - At the age of 18 years old, Charles was alive when on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen. The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students.

1977 - At the age of 25 years old, Charles was alive when on January 21st, President Carter pardoned "draft dodgers" - men who avoided the draft during the Vietnam War.

1997 - At the age of 45 years old, Charles was alive when on June 26th, the first Harry Potter book by J. K. Rowling was released.

Rowling, at the time of the first book a poor single mother, has become a multi-billionaire.
