Timeline

1904 - In the year that Herman W Wood was born, the United States acquired the Panama Canal Zone. Now an unincorporated territory of the U.S., the Canal Zone had been previously held by the French, who were constructing a canal. The U.S. took over the construction of the Panama Canal and it was finally finished in 1914, when it was opened to commercial shipping. The United States held the Canal Zone until 1979.

1917 - By the time he was merely 13 years old, Russian government offices were seized and the Romanov's Winter Palace was stormed in the Russian February and October Revolutions.

The October revolution resulted in Lenin and the Bolsheviks taking complete control.

1921 - When he was 17 years old, hugely popular Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, silent film star, was arrested for rape and manslaughter after an actress died following a party at his house.

His films were at first banned - the ban was lifted after a year - and he was mostly ostracized by the community. He died at 46..

1994 - At the age of 90 years old, Herman was alive when on May 6th, former political prisoner, lawyer, and activist Nelson Mandela was elected the first black President of South Africa. He was 75 when he was elected and he served one five-year term.
