The dam was built on the Nile River in order to conserve water and regulate flooding, allowing for population increase along the Nile.

1935 - At the age of 45 years old, Ruby was alive when on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1971 - In the year of Ruby Fish's passing, in March, Congress passed the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which lowered the voting age to 18 (from 21).

The states quickly ratified the Amendment and it was signed into law on July 1st by President Richard Nixon.
