Timeline

1900 - In the year that Ruth M Burris was born, the German physicist Max Planck formulated an energy theory, postulating the existence of "quanta," which lays the groundwork for the quantum theory of modern physics.

Planck won a Nobel Prize in 1918 for his work in theoretical Physics.

1942 - When she was 42 years old, due to World War II, automobile production in the United States was stopped on February 1st. A tire rationing program had begun the month before.

The president of the Automobile Manufacturers Association said “The automotive industry is in this war all the way". Some dealerships had to close and others expanded their repair shops. The used car market boomed (as did a black market in used cars).

1964 - By the time she was 64 years old, on June 11th, activist Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment in South Africa for conspiring to overthrow the state (because of his numerous anti-apartheid activities). He served 27 years in prison.

1982 - At the age of 82 years old, Ruth was alive when on September 14th, Princess Grace of Monaco (American actress Grace Kelly), 52, died of injuries when her car plunged off a mountain road.

It's believed that the accident was caused when Princess Grace, who was driving, had a mild stroke.
