Timeline

1935 - In the year that John H Wiltcher was born, on September 8th, Louisiana Senator Huey Long was shot by Dr. Carl Weiss.

The previous year, on May 15th, Alameda County Sheriffs used shotguns against U.C. Berkeley students at a protest for People's Park. One student died, one was blinded, 128 were injured.
