In 1910, Henry was 16 years old when Thomas Edison introduced his kinetophone, which he hoped would make "talkies" a reality. But the sound wasn't synchronized to the pictures and only 45 Kinetophones were made.

In 1943, when he was 49 years old, on September 3rd, the Armistice of Cassibile was signed in Sicily. Under the terms of the Armistice, Italy surrendered to the Allied Powers. After the Armistice was made public on September 8th, Germany attacked and occupied Italy. It took 20 months of fighting for the Allies to reach the northern borders of Italy.

In 1954, at the age of 60 years old, Henry was alive when from April 22 through June 17th, the Army v. McCarthy hearings were held.

The Army allegations were found to be true. The U.S. Senate later censured McCarthy.
