Timeline

1920 - In the year that Vernon W Bingham was born, on January 1, over 6000 people were arrested and put in prison because they were suspected of being communists. . Many had to be released in a few weeks and only 3 guns were found in their homes.

But the "hunt" ended after Attorney General Palmer forecast a massive radical uprising on May Day and the day passed without incident.

The parade was 6 miles long and included floats, Macy's employees dressed as clowns, cowboys, and sword-wielding knights, and animals from Central Park Zoo. Santa Claus, of course, brought up the rear - opening the Christmas shopping season for Macy's.

1925 - At the age of only 5 years old, Vernon was alive when on November 28th, radio station WSM broadcast the Grand Ole Opry for the first time.

1950 - He was 30 years old when on October 2, Charlie Brown appeared in the first Peanuts comic strip - created by Charles Schultz - and he was the only character in that strip. That year, Schultz said that Charlie was 4 years old, but Charlie aged a bit through the years.
