In 1937, in the year that Roy Ellison was born, 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.

In 1949, he was only 12 years old when on January 25th, the first Emmy Awards (for television) were handed out in Los Angeles. Shirley Dinsdale won for the Most Outstanding Television Personality and Pantomime Quiz Time earned an Emmy for the Most Popular Television Program.

In 1952, he was just 15 years old when on July 2, Dr. Jonas E. Salk tested the first dead-virus polio vaccine on 43 children.

In 1961, by the time he was 24 years old, on August 13th, East Germany began erection of what would become the Berlin Wall between East and West Berlin.

In 1970, in the year of Roy Ellison's passing, on May 1st, US troops invaded Cambodia, expanding the Vietnam War. The invasion of Cambodia was a Nixon policy, although it was argued against by both his Secretary of State and his Secretary of Defense.
