    The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.

    1944 · The G.I Bill

    Age 25

    The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
