Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company were the only two major motorcycle companies to survive the Great Depression.

1942 - When she was 42 years old, on November 28th at 10:15p, a nightclub in Boston, the Cocoanut Grove, caught fire.

The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.
