Timeline

1906 - In the year that Savilla Geiger was born, English biochemist Frederick Hopkins concluded that vitamins are essential to the human body and that a lack of vitamins caused scurvy and rickets. Scurvy and rickets were both huge problems in sailors that were at sea for extended time and the addition of vitamin C, vitamin D, and calcium in their diets helped eradicate the problem.

1920 - When this person was merely 14 years old, the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote, passed both Houses of Congress and was sent to the States to ratify.

1934 - When this person was 28 years old, on July 22nd, gangster John Dillinger was killed in Chicago. His gang had robbed banks and police stations, among other charges, and he was being hunted by J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI - although many in the public saw him as a "Robin Hood". A madam from a brothel in which he was hiding became an informer for the FBI and, after a shootout with FBI agents, Dillinger was shot and died.

1985 - At the age of 79 years old, Savilla was alive when on March 7th, the song "We Are the World" was released as a charity effort to alleviate the African famine.
