His son had been killed in a train accident that also involved Pierce and his wife on January 6 - the only of 3 sons to survive until then.

1924 - She was 71 years old when on January 21st, Vladimir Lenin, a leader of the Russian Revolution and the first leader of the Soviet Union died. He had survived two assassination attempts but had subsequent physical problems, suffering 3 strokes. He was in such great pain, it is said that he asked Stalin to poison him. The circumstances of his death are still disputed. He did oppose Stalin as the next leader - nonetheless, Stalin won a power struggle and ruled as a Soviet dictator until his death in 1953.

1952 - By the time she was 99 years old, on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.
