1934 - At the age of 47 years old, Tom was alive when on November 11th 1933, an extremely strong dust storm hit South Dakota, stripping topsoil. Other strong dust storms had occurred during 1933. Severe droughts continued to hit the Great Plains and the dust storms devastated agricultural production as well as people's' lives for several years.

Greece, Turkey, and West Germany later joined. Today, there are 26 nations in NATO.

1954 - Tom was 67 years old when on May 17th, the Supreme Court released a decision on Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The ruling stated that state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional thus paving the way for integration in schools.

Nixon releases some of the tapes, under extreme pressure because of the firings.
