The organization focused on legal strategies designed to confront the critical civil rights issues of the day - which included lynching and segregation in schools.

The president of the Automobile Manufacturers Association said “The automotive industry is in this war all the way". Some dealerships had to close and others expanded their repair shops. The used car market boomed (as did a black market in used cars).

1958 - At the age of 49 years old, Edelmira was alive when on January 1st, the European Economic Community (Common Market) came into operation.

Within 100 hours, American ground troops declared Kuwait liberated.
