Timeline

1928 - In the year that Ronald Gregory Colpitts was born, Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie.

1937 - At the age of just 9 years old, Ronald was alive when on May 28th, the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge opened to cars. Taking 5 years to build, the 4,200-foot-long suspension bridge was an engineering marvel of its time - 11 men died during construction. The "international orange" color was chosen because it resisted rust and fading. To the present, it is the symbol of the City that is known throughout the world.

Bill, was signed into law, pushed through by the veteran's organizations. Benefits provided for veterans to return to school (high school, vocational school, or college), obtain low interest home mortgages and low interest business loans, and (if needed) one year of unemployment insurance. Since most returning vets immediately found work, less than 20% of the unemployment benefits were distributed.

1959 - Ronald was 31 years old when on August 8th, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. The US flag was changed to show 50 stars.
