He spent 15 years in prison.

1935 - At the age of 40 years old, Dorothy was alive when on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1965 - At the age of 70 years old, Dorothy was alive when from August 11 to 16, riots broke out in Watts, a Black section of Los Angeles.
