Previously right hand man to boss Johnny Torrio, Capone took over when Torrio was shot and severely injured and decided to resign.

President Roosevelt approved of all of them and most them were implemented during his terms as President. She served until his death in 1945.

In 1956, at the age of 31 years old, Janet was alive when this was the year that the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, became an international sensation.

Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.

In 1963, she was 38 years old when the British Secretary of War, 46 year old John Profumo ,was forced to resign when he lied about an affair with 19 year old Christine Keeler.
