In 1907, in the year that George W Martin was born, radiometric dating, a recently discovered technology that could date rocks, found that the earth was 2.2 billion years old which was dramatically older than previously thought.

In 1918, when he was just 11 years old, on November 1, an elevated train on the Brooklyn line of the subway - driven by an inexperienced operator because of a strike - tried to navigate a turn at 30mph.

In 1923, at the age of 16 years old, George was alive when the A.C. Nielsen Company was founded in Chicago.

Almost 5,000 landing and assault craft, 289 escort vessels, and 277 minesweepers were involved.
