Age 4

Power was supplied to rural Kansas, which had been hit hard by the depression, in March 1938. Many farmers could not afford the $5 hookups for electricity. As a result, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act which provided loans to farmers who wanted electricity. Brown County became the first to receive service.
1951 · The Twenty-Second Amendment

Age 17
