In 1915, in the year that Elsie L Ruff was born, Audrey Munson, playing a model for a sculptor in the film "Inspiration", became the first actress to shed her clothes on screen. Fearing that banning the film would mean that censors would also have to "ban Renaissance art" the film was released, with Munson in the nude scenes and a stand-in doing the acting. (Munson had previously been "America's First Supermodel" and posed nude as the model for many famous artworks.) The film was a hit with audiences.

In 1949, Elsie was 34 years old when on April 4th, NATO (the North Atlantic Treaty Organization) was established.

Greece, Turkey, and West Germany later joined. Today, there are 26 nations in NATO.

In 1967, at the age of 52 years old, Elsie was alive when on November 7th, President Johnson signed legislation passed by Congress that created the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), which would later become PBS and NPR. The legislation required CPB to operate with a "strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature".

In 1981, at the age of 66 years old, Elsie was alive when on August 1st, MTV debuted. It was the first music video TV channel. The first music video played was the Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" - the second was Pat Benatar's "You Better Run".

In 1992, in the year of Elsie L Ruff's passing, in April, Bosnia-Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia.
