In 1890, at the age of 20 years old, Emily was alive when on June 1st, the U.S. Census Bureau started tabulating census returns with punch cards.

Hollerith's company eventually became IBM.

In 1908, at the age of 38 years old, Emily was alive when a 7.1 earthquake and the resulting tsunami killed 70,000 to 100,000 people in southern Italy and Sicily. The earthquake, lasting 30 to 40 seconds, occurred in the Strait of Messina which was between the region of Calabria (at the "toe" of Italy) and the island of Sicily and destruction from it occurred in a 186 mile radius. It was the most destructive earthquake ever to hit Europe.

In 1937, at the age of 67 years old, Emily was alive when on May 28th, the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge opened to cars.
