Timeline

1924 - In the year that Lewis J Houdak was born, J.

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

1981 - Lewis was 57 years old when on January 20th, Ronald Reagan became the 40th President of the United States. He ran against the incumbent, Jimmy Carter, and won 50.7% of the popular vote to Carter's 41.0%.
