He ran against Republican Governor Alf Landon (Kansas), defeating Landon in the popular vote by 60.8% to 36.5%. Vermont and Maine were the only two states in which Landon won. John Nance Garner IV became the Vice-President in this election.

In 1943, Ethel was 22 years old when on March 31st, the Broadway musical Oklahoma! opened.

The musical ran for 2,212 performances originally and was made into a movie in 1954.

In 1978, at the age of 57 years old, Ethel was alive when on July 25th, Louise Brown, the first "test-tube baby", was born at Oldham Hospital in London. Louise was conceived through IVF (in vitro fertilization), a controversial and experimental procedure at the time.
