1928 - This person was only 15 years old when aviatrix Amelia Earhart, age 31, became the first woman to fly solo across North America and back in August.

The North American flight became one of her many "firsts" as a female pilot.

1952 - By the time this person was 39 years old, on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.
