Timeline

1905 - In the year that Raymond Ostroff was born, acclaimed dancer Isadora Duncan established the first school of modern dance in Berlin Germany.

The parade was 6 miles long and included floats, Macy's employees dressed as clowns, cowboys, and sword-wielding knights, and animals from Central Park Zoo. Santa Claus, of course, brought up the rear - opening the Christmas shopping season for Macy's.

1955 - At the age of 50 years old, Raymond was alive when on September 10th the TV show "Gunsmoke" debuted on CBS. It went on to be television's longest-running western. Matt Dillon, Chester, Doc Adams, and Miss Kitty became household names.
