1901 - Lloyd was just 5 years old when Teddy Roosevelt became the 26th President of the United States.

1924 - When he was 28 years old, in May, wealthy college students Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb kidnapped and killed 14 year old Robert Franks "in the interest of science". Leopold and Loeb thought that they were intellectually superior and that they could commit the perfect crime and not be caught.

Loeb was eventually killed in prison - Leopold was released after 33 years, dying of a heart attack at age 66.
