1886 - In the year that William Culm was born, on May 4th, a general strike began in Chicago. Workers were striking for an 8 hour workday and in protest of the killing - by police - of several workers the day before. When an unknown person threw a dynamite bomb, the strike became violent. Seven policemen were killed as well as 4 civilians. It became known as the Haymarket Riot and eventually resulted in an 8 hourwork day as well as commemorations on May 1st for worker's rights.

1908 - At the age of 22 years old, William was alive when Henry Ford developed the first Model T automobile, often called the Tin Lizzy or flivver.

And Rudolph Valentino, an Italian American, became the heartthrob of a female generation.

1951 - By the time he was 65 years old, on April 5th, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (husband and wife) were sentenced to death for treason. They were executed on June 19th.
