In 1898, by the time she was 21 years old, magnate and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller's Standard Oil Company controlled 84% of the oil and pipelines in the United States.

In 1915, when she was 38 years old, in April, the Ottoman Empire rounded up, arrested, and deported 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Turkey.

In 1920, by the time she was 43 years old, the Volstead Act became law. Formally called the National Prohibition Act, the Volstead Act enabled law enforcement agencies to carry out the 18th Amendment.

In 1942, in the year of Ethel Elizabeth Wood's passing, on June 17th, Roosevelt approved the Manhattan Project, which lead to the development of the first atomic bomb.
