As early as 1826, a call to elect senators through popular vote was championed and previous to the 17th amendment, two states had already changed their process. Governors are still able to appoint senators to vacant seats until an election can be held.

1946 - At the age of 33 years old, Erlean was alive when pediatrician Dr. Benjamin Spock's book "The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care" was published.
