1929 - In the year that Donald B Knowlton was born, the St. Valentine's Day Massacre happened on February 14th. In Chicago, seven men from the North Side Irish gang were gunned down by Al Capone's South Side Italian gang at the garage at 2122 North Clark Street.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).
