Isadora Duncan, born in San Francisco California, dedicated herself to the creation of beauty - through dance. Her focus on the movement of the human body rather than formal kinds of dance helped to give rise to the modern dance movement.

1925 - Eddie was 20 years old when gangster Al "Scarface" Capone took over the Chicago bootlegging racket at age 26.
