1900 - At the age of just 10 years old, Valley was alive when 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.

1941 - Valley was 51 years old when on June 25th, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, prohibiting racial discrimination in the defense industry.

Elvis scandalized adults and thrilled teens.
