1913 · The Woolworth Building Opens as the Tallest Building in the World

Age 29

At 792 feet above Broadway, the Woolworth Building became the tallest building in the world and held the record for 17 years. The Woolworth Building was overshadowed by the Chrysler Building at 1,046 feet in 1930 and the Empire State Building at 1,454 feet in 1931. Retailer and mogul Frank W. Woolworth commissioned the Woolworth Building in 1910 with the intent of his namesake building to be the tallest in the world. The 13 million dollar project was financed in cash by Woolworth which allowed him freedoms in the design and construction of the ornate, gothic building. An opening ceremony was held on April 24, 1913 at which President Woodrow Wilson pressed a button from the White House and lit the historic building in New York City.
1916 · The First woman elected into the US Congress

Name Meaning

1 Jewish (American): Americanized form of Gorelik .2 English (chiefly Lancashire): from Middle English garlek ‘garlic’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a grower or seller of garlic or perhaps a nickname for someone who ate a lot of garlic. An alternative derivation of the English name is from an unrecorded survival into Middle English of the Old English personal name Gārlāc, which is composed of the elements gār ‘spear’ + lāc ‘sport’, ‘play’.3 German: altered form of Garlich ( see Gerlich ).
