In 1920, in the year that Henry Rumph was born, the Volstead Act became law. Formally called the National Prohibition Act, the Volstead Act enabled law enforcement agencies to carry out the 18th Amendment.

In 1936, when he was 16 years old, on November 3rd, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was reelected to a second term.

John Nance Garner IV became the Vice-President in this election.

In 1957, at the age of 37 years old, Henry was alive when on October 4th, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, the first man made earth-orbiting satellite - and triggered the Space Race.

In 1960, when he was 40 years old, on May 1st, an American CIA U-2 spy plane, piloted by Francis Gary Powers, was shot down by a surface-to-air missile over the Soviet Union.
