In 1900, at the age of just 4 years old, Edwin was alive when the German physicist Max Planck formulated an energy theory, postulating the existence of "quanta," which lays the groundwork for the quantum theory of modern physics.

Planck won a Nobel Prize in 1918 for his work in theoretical Physics.

In 1904, Edwin was just 8 years old when the first underground line of the New York City subway system opened.
