Timeline

1914 - In the year that Genevieve A Balderson was born, in June, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated by a Yugoslavian national. Austria-Hungary delivered an ultimatum to Serbia. Other major powers took sides - and World War I began: Austria declared war on Serbia; Germany on Russia and France; Britain on Germany . . . and on it went until most of the world was embroiled in the war.

1926 - She was only 12 years old when on November 15th, NBC was founded. It was the U.S.'s first major broadcast network.

1934 - At the age of 20 years old, Genevieve was alive when on July 22nd, gangster John Dillinger was killed in Chicago. His gang had robbed banks and police stations, among other charges, and he was being hunted by J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI - although many in the public saw him as a "Robin Hood". A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

1976 - At the age of 62 years old, Genevieve was alive when on August 4th, a mysterious illness struck an American Legion convention in Philadelphia.
