In 1899, in the year that Robart Walker was born, the meaning of Chinese "oracle bones" was rediscovered. Farmers in China had been turning up the bones in their fields for generations but most often they were ground up and sold as medicine. The chancellor of the Imperial Academy and a friend noticed, before they ground the bones, that they had writing. The bones had been used around the second millennium BC for divination.

In 1906, by the time this person was only 7 years old, Finland became the first European country to give women the vote and to allow them to run for political office.
