Timeline

1935 - In the year that Elaine Jones was born, on September 8th, Louisiana Senator Huey Long was shot by Dr. Carl Weiss. Weiss was shot and killed immediately by Long's bodyguards - Long died two days later from his injuries. Long had received many death threats previously, as well as threats against his family. He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts). His opponents became frustrated with their attempts to oust him and Dr. Weiss was the son-in-law of one of those opponents. His funeral was attended by 200,000 mourners.

1965 - At the age of 30 years old, Elaine was alive when the television show "I Spy" premiered in the fall season on NBC.

Bush who was seeking his second term. Clinton won 43.01% of the popular vote to Bush's 37.45%.
