1923 - Ellen was only 1 year old when the Teapot Dome scandal became the subject of an investigation by Senator Walsh and severely damaged the reputation of the Harding administration.

At the time, the Teapot Dome scandal was seen as "greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics".

1952 - Ellen was 30 years old when on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.

1977 - By the time she was 55 years old, on May 25th, Star Wars premiered in theaters. Eventually, it became the highest-grossing film of all time - until E.T. surpassed it a few years later. It was an immediate hit with theatergoers.

1990 - She was 68 years old when on April 24th, the Hubble telescope was launched into space after long delays due to the Challenger explosion.
