Timeline

1912 - In the year that Oliver Leverett was born, the Girl Scouts of the USA was started by Juliette Gordon Low with the help of Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts in Great Britain.

1965 - Oliver was 53 years old when from August 11 to 16, riots broke out in Watts, a Black section of Los Angeles.

The National Guard was called in to help the LA police quell rioting.

1981 - By the time he was 69 years old, on January 20th, Ronald Reagan became the 40th President of the United States. He ran against the incumbent, Jimmy Carter, and won 50.7% of the popular vote to Carter's 41.0%.
