Timeline

1890 - In the year that Evan Jeter was born, on June 1st, the U.S. Census Bureau started tabulating census returns with punch cards.

Hollerith's company eventually became IBM.

The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students. The previous year, on May 15th, Alameda County Sheriffs used shotguns against U.C. Berkeley students at a protest for People's Park. One student died, one was blinded, 128 were injured.
