Church responded with the now famous editorial "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus".

1904 - At the age of only 7 years old, Harvey was alive when the "Teddy's Bear" was first produced.

1914 - Harvey was 17 years old when in August, the world's first red and green traffic lights were installed at the corner of East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland Ohio. The electric traffic light had been invented by a policeman in Salt Lake City Utah in 1912.

In Chicago, seven men from the North Side Irish gang were gunned down by Al Capone's South Side Italian gang at the garage at 2122 North Clark Street. Al Capone was making a successful move to take over Chicago's organized crime. But the St. Valentine's Day massacre also resulted in a public outcry against all gangsters.
