Timeline

1905 - In the year that Walter Parnell was born, acclaimed dancer Isadora Duncan established the first school of modern dance in Berlin Germany. Isadora Duncan, born in San Francisco California, dedicated herself to the creation of beauty - through dance.

It tried to dock in New Jersey, one of the stops, and something went wrong - it blew up. Thirty-six people were killed out of the 97 on board - 13 passengers, 22 crewmen, and one ground worker. The reasons for the explosion are still disputed.

1954 - He was 49 years old when from April 22 through June 17th, the Army v. McCarthy hearings were held.

The Army allegations were found to be true. The U.S. Senate later censured McCarthy.
