Timeline

1935 - In the year that Walter H Hurt was born, on August 14, the Social Security Act was signed into law. The purpose was to "provide federal assistance to those unable to work".

The Act survived many Supreme Court challenges and the Administration continues until today.

1939 - At the age of only 4 years old, Walter was alive when in May, Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the first full-length animated film, reached a total international gross of $6.5 million which made it (to then) the most successful sound film of all time. First released in December 1937, it was originally dubbed "Disney's Folly" but the premiere received a standing ovation from the audience.

1941 - When he was merely 6 years old, on June 25th, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, prohibiting racial discrimination in the defense industry.

1967 - At the age of 32 years old, Walter was alive when on October 2nd, Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black US Supreme Court justice.
