1923 - Lillie was 16 years old when on September 1, an earthquake - the Great Kanto earthquake - destroyed one-third of Tokyo.

1949 - Lillie was 42 years old when comedian Milton Berle hosted the first telethon show. It raised $1,100,000 for cancer research and lasted 16 hours. The next day, newspapers, in writing about the event, first used the word "telethon."

1985 - In the year of Lillie Mccoy's passing, in May, a paper published in Nature by three British scientists reported that a huge hole was discovered in the ozone layer over the Antarctic. It was much larger than expected and is due to the use of manmade chemicals.
