1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act

Age 3

This Act tried to prevent the raising of prices by restricting trade. The purpose of the Act was to preserve a competitive marketplace to protect consumers from abuse.

Age 7

Mary Philbrook was the first woman in New Jersey to become a lawyer. She had applied for admission to the New Jersey Bar in 1894, but was rejected because the New Jersey Court stated that women were not vested with any right to be attorneys. Mary lobbied with the Jersey City Woman's Club for an update to the law, which was passed in 1895 and allowed women to become lawyers. Mary Philbrook was the first woman to be admitted after the law change.

Age 24

The Standard Oil Company had reached a point of almost complete monopoly, managing over 90% of oil flows in the United States. The Standard Oil Company of New Jersey was a large, integrated association that produced, transported, refined, and marketed the product. In 1911, the Supreme Court declared that the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey was in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. As a result, it was split into 34 smaller companies.
