Timeline

1899 - In the year that John O Parketon was born, the meaning of Chinese "oracle bones" was rediscovered. Farmers in China had been turning up the bones in their fields for generations but most often they were ground up and sold as medicine. The chancellor of the Imperial Academy and a friend noticed, before they ground the bones, that they had writing. The bones had been used around the second millennium BC for divination.

1942 - John was 43 years old when on November 28th at 10:15p, a nightclub in Boston, the Cocoanut Grove, caught fire.

The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.

With the win of Okinawa, the United States gained an important base of operations in the Pacific.

1963 - By the time he was 64 years old, on November 22nd, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson became the 36th President of the United States when President John Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas. Johnson was sworn in on the plane carrying Kennedy's body back to Washington D.C.
