1921 - When this person was merely 11 years old, on March 4, Warren G. Harding became President.

A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

1941 - At the age of 31 years old, Merwin was alive when on December 7th, the Japanese attacked the military base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
