1935 - In the year that Davis A Holland was born, on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Allies didn't want this to happen again and the Marshall Plan was devised to make sure that those conditions didn't arise again.

1951 - Davis was 16 years old when on April 5th, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (husband and wife) were sentenced to death for treason. They were executed on June 19th.
