In 1900, in the year that Vera Mae (Van Kleeck) Winne was born, the U.S. helped put down Boxer Rebellion.

In 1955, by the time she was 55 years old, on September 30th, movie star James Dean, 24, died in a car accident.

Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

In 1965, by the time she was 65 years old, on March 8th, the first US combat troops arrived in Vietnam. The 3500 Marines joined 23,000 "advisors" already in South Vietnam. By the end of the year, 190,000 American soldiers were in the country.

In 1971, by the time she was 71 years old, in March, Intel shipped the first microprocessor to Busicom, a Japanese manufacturer of calculators.
