Timeline

1916 - In the year that Marion Saunders was born, the U.S. National Park Service - part of the Department of the Interior - was created by an act of Congress in August.

The resources managed by the National Park Service have often been referred to as the "crown jewels" of the United States.

1954 - She was 38 years old when on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The ruling stated that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional thus paving the way for integration in schools.

1969 - At the age of 53 years old, Marion was alive when one hundred countries, along with the United States and the Soviet Union signed the nuclear nonproliferation treaty (NPT). It called for stopping the spread of nuclear weapons, the peaceful use of nuclear energy, and the goal of nuclear disarmament.

1973 - In the year of Marion Saunders's passing, on January 28th, the Paris Peace Accord was signed - supposedly ending the Vietnam War.
