    1918 · Attempting to Stop the War
    Age 1
    To end World War I, President Wilson created a list of principles to be used as negotiations for peace among the nations. Known as The Fourteen Points, the principles were outlined in a speech on war aimed toward the idea of peace but most of the Allied forces were skeptical of this Wilsonian idealism.
    1921 · One of The Oldest Coasters in the World
    Age 4
    Utah is home to one of the oldest coasters in the world that is still operational. The Roller Coaster, at Lagoon Amusement park, is listed number 5.
    1939 · Hill Air Force Base
    Age 22
    Named in honor of Major Ployer Peter Hill, Hill Field started as an ill-fated Air Mail experiment. Hoping to be located closer to the Salt Lake City area, the present-day site near Ogden was a clear favorite. In July 1939, Congress gave the green light for the establishment and construction of the Ogden Air Depot. Hill Field officially opened on 7 November 1940. Hill Field officially became Hill Air Force Base after World War II and continued to store and maintain warplanes during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Today the Air Force Base is still in service, but it also has an Aerospace Museum on site where many people visit each year to learn of its history in Northern Utah.

    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, and Irish: generally a nickname referring to the color of the hair or complexion, Middle English br(o)un, from Old English brūn or Old French brun. This word is occasionally found in Old French, Middle English and Old Norse as a personal name or byname (Middle English personal name Brun, Broun, ancient Germanic Bruno, Old English Brūn, or possibly Old Norse Brúnn or Brúni). Brun- was also an ancient Germanic name-forming element. Some instances of Old English Brūn as a personal name may therefore be short forms of compound names such as Brūngar, Brūnwine, etc. As a Scottish and Irish name, it sometimes represents a translation of Gaelic Donn (see below). Brown (including in the senses below) is the fourth most frequent surname in the US. It is also very common among African Americans and Native Americans (see also 5 below).Irish and Scottish: adopted for Ó Duinn (see Dunn ) or for any of the many Irish and Scottish Gaelic names containing the element donn ‘brown-haired’ (also meaning ‘chieftain’), for example Donahue .Irish: phonetic Anglicization of Mac an Bhreitheamhnaigh; see Breheny .
