1906 - When this person was only 10 years old, President Theodore Roosevelt received the Nobel Prize for Peace. The award was considered controversial at the time because many thought that he was an imperialist.

For these two reasons, the Nobel Prize committee chose him for the Peace Prize.

The President who championed a woman's right to vote also created a day in their honor.

1954 - When this person was 58 years old, on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The ruling stated that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional thus paving the way for integration in schools.
