Timeline

1881 - In the year that Fred Coleman was born, on November 19th, a meteorite landed a few miles southwest of Odessa, Ukraine. According to one report: "About 7 o'clock one morning a bright and serpentine tail of fire was seen passing over the town by the inhabitants of Odessa, and M. Prendel, editor of one of the Odessa papers, surmising that the phenomenon betokened a fall of meteorites, offered a reward to any person who would bring him one. Three days afterward a gentleman of Grossliebental brought him one which had been found by a peasant who was nearly frightened out of his senses at its fall. It fell beside him while at work in his field and buried itself .55 meters (almost 2 ft) into the ground." The recovered piece was about 17.5 lbs.

1890 - When he was merely 9 years old, on June 1st, the U.S. Census Bureau started tabulating census returns with punch cards.

Hollerith's company eventually became IBM.

Johnson became the 36th President of the United States when President John Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas.
