Timeline

1910 - In the year that Margaret E Findlay was born, Angel Island, which is in San Francisco Bay, became the immigration center for Asians entering U.S. It was often referred to as "The Ellis Island of the West". Due to restrictive laws against Chinese immigration, many immigrants spent years on the island.

1920 - She was merely 10 years old when Italian born factory worker Nicola Sacco and fish peddler Bartolomeo Vanzetti were picked up by police on May 5th in connection with the April 15th murder and robbery of a guard and a paymaster at the Slater and Morrill Shoe Company in South Braintree, Mass. Although in later years they were thought to be innocent, they were anarchists and were convicted of the crime and put to death.

1923 - By the time she was only 13 years old, the Teapot Dome scandal became the subject of an investigation by Senator Walsh and severely damaged the reputation of the Harding administration.

At the time, the Teapot Dome scandal was seen as "greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics".

1990 - In the year of Margaret E Findlay's passing, on April 24th, the Hubble telescope was launched into space after long delays due to the Challenger explosion.
