Timeline

1893 - In the year that Maurice E Nelson was born, on February 1st, Thomas Edison's motion picture studio on his laboratory grounds in West Orange New Jersey was completed. The studio was called "Black Maria" and the first movie made and viewed in it was of 3 people pretending to be blacksmiths.

1906 - Maurice was merely 13 years old when abolitionist and suffragette leader Susan B. Anthony died, before women's right to vote nationally was realized (in 1920).

She died at the age of 86 of heart failure and pneumonia in her home in New York.

1931 - At the age of 38 years old, Maurice was alive when on May 1st, the Empire State Building opened in New York City.

Opening at the beginning of the Great Depression, most of the offices in the Empire State Building remained unoccupied for years and the observation deck was an equal source of revenue and kept the building profitable.
