For many years Gustave Carlson resided in Manchester CT, on Ashland st. Mr. Carlson was a familiar neighbor from the early '60s to the mid '90s. By September 1994 he had grown old and feeble. In March 1995, he was taken from his home to (IIRC) a VA hospital. As far as I know he remained in CT until his death in November 1998, and never retired to Florida. He was buried in the East Cemetery in Manchester. At the time of his death, I saw no biographical summary just a name listing. I understand, however, he was in the Navy during WWII, serving as a machinist's mate. Mr. Carlson was predeceased by his wife, who was alcoholic. In the '60s she frequently walked to the Main Pub in Manchester. Mrs. Carlson passed away around 1974. There was another person in the house, a genial extrovert known to us simply as John, who died around March 1993.

1913 - 1998 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Gustave's lifetime.

In 1913, in the year that Gustave Carlson was born, ratified in February the 16th Amendment, establishing a Federal income tax, became law. Previously, customs duties (tariffs) and excise taxes were the primary sources of federal revenue. With the passage of the 16th Amendment, incomes of couples exceeding $4,000, as well as those of single persons earning $3,000 or more, were subject to a 1% Federal tax (that would be about $98,000 and $74,000 now). Rates rose to 7% for incomes over half a million dollars. Less than 1% of the population was subject to income tax.

In 1936, at the age of 23 years old, Gustave was alive when on November 2nd, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) debuted the world's first regular high-definition television service. The channel had a short schedule - Monday through Saturday, 3:00p to 4:00p and 9:00p to 10:00p. The first broadcast was "Opening of the BBC Television Service".

In 1964, by the time he was 51 years old, in June, three young civil rights workers - Andrew Goodman and Mickey Schwerner from New York City, and James Chaney from Meridian, Mississippi - were kidnapped and murdered in Mississippi. Working with "Freedom Summer", they were registering African-Americans to vote in the Southern states. Their bodies were found two months later. Although it was discovered that the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, the Neshoba County Sheriff's Office and the Philadelphia, Mississippi Police Department were involved, only 7 men were convicted and served less than six years.

In 1979, by the time he was 66 years old, on November 4th, Iranian militant students seized the US embassy in Teheran and held 52 American citizens and diplomats hostage for 444 days. They were released at the end of the inauguration speech of the newly elected Ronald Reagan.

In 1998, in the year of Gustave Carlson's passing, on December 19th, the movie Titanic - based on the 1912 sinking of the ship and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet - was released. Winning 11 Oscars, it was the first film to gross over a billion dollars and eventually grossed over $2 billion.
