1894 - In the year that Mirtie Lachapelle was born, large reserves of oil were discovered on the Osage Indian reservation in Oklahoma.

The discovery of oil made the Osage the "richest group of people in the world" at the time.

1902 - This person was only 8 years old when the modern air conditioner was invented by Willis H. Carrier.

The Sun Belt thanks him!

1920 - This person was 26 years old when on November 2, radio station KDKA began broadcasting in Pittsburgh, PA. This was the first commercial radio broadcast in the United States.

People liked it because they could hear about the results of the election between Harding and Cox before the morning papers arrived. Four years later, there were 600 commercial stations broadcasting in the U.S.

1962 - At the age of 68 years old, Mirtie was alive when on February 20th, Lt. Col. John H. Glenn, Jr. became the first American to orbit the Earth. The Friendship 7 flew three times around the earth in 4 hours and 55 minutes. At age 77, Glenn returned to space - the oldest person to fly in space.

1992 - In the year of Mirtie Lachapelle's passing, on February 1st, US President George Bush and President Boris Yeltsin of Russia jointly announced an end to the Cold War, proclaiming a new era of "friendship and partnership".
