In 1902, in the year that Florence Nightingale was born, the modern air conditioner was invented by Willis H. Carrier.

The Sun Belt thanks him!

In 1946, at the age of 44 years old, Florence was alive when on July 4th, the Philippines gained independence from the United States. In 1964, Independence Day in the Philippines was moved from July 4th to June 12th at the insistence of nationalists and historians.

In 1952, at the age of 50 years old, Florence was alive when on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.

In 1984, at the age of 82 years old, Florence was alive when due to outrage about "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" (it seemed too "dark" to many and it was rated PG), a new rating was devised - PG-13. The first film rated PG-13 was "Red Dawn".
