1913 - In the year that John S Bishop was born, Henry Ford installed the first moving assembly line for the mass production of an entire automobile. It had previously taken 12 hours to assemble a whole vehicle - now it took only two hours and 30 minutes!

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

Greece, Turkey, and West Germany later joined. Today, there are 26 nations in NATO.

1951 - John was 38 years old when on April 5th, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (husband and wife) were sentenced to death for treason. They were executed on June 19th. American citizens, they were convicted of spying for the Soviet Union. Their two young sons were adopted by a high school teacher and his wife.
