Mabel boarded the RMS Titanic as 3rd class to emigrate back to Iron Mountain, Michigan from Hallekis, Sweden (the family moved back to Sweden after her older brother's accident)-she boarded with her parents and siblings Karl (11) Harald (5) Margrit (not yet 2) from Southampton, England on April 10, 1912. On April 14, 1912 the ship struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean at 11:45 PM and sank by splitting in two at 2: 20 AM. The family sadly perished in the sinking and none of their bodies were found.

1902 - 1912 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Mabel's lifetime.

In 1902, in the year that Mabel Skoog was born, the Bureau of the Census was established. This was the government department that was a boon to family historians - it, even now, is responsible for taking the census and provides demographic information and analyses about the population of the United States.

In 1910, she was only 8 years old when the Boy Scouts of America was incorporated. U.S. publisher W.D. Boyce was visiting England when he became lost in the London fog. An unknown Boy Scout helped him find his way out, declining a tip (he said that he was a Boy Scout and was doing his good deed for the day). Boyce was so impressed that he incorporated the Boy Scouts of America when he returned home. Its purpose was "to teach boys patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred values."

In 1911, by the time she was merely 9 years old, the Triangle Shirtwaist fire occurred, one of the deadliest industrial disasters in U.S. history. 146 workers (123 women and 23 men, many of them recent Jewish and Italian immigrants) died from the fire or by jumping to escape the fire and smoke. The garment factory was on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors of a building in Greenwich Village in Manhattan. Doors to stairwells and exits had been locked in order to prevent workers from taking unauthorized breaks and to prevent theft, so they couldn't escape by normal means when the fire broke out. Due to the disaster, legislation was passed to protect sweatshop workers.

In 1912, in the year of Mabel Skoog's passing, Arizona was admitted to the United States in February (on Valentine's Day). It became the 48th state in the Union. Previously a Spanish - then Mexican - territory, the U.S. paid $15 million dollars for the area in 1848. Arizona was the last of the contiguous states to be admitted to the United States.
