1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 1

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
1902 · Old Main (Utah State University)

Age 2

The first building on the Utah State University Campus was named Old Main and is the oldest functioning academic building in Utah. It was built after the current site was approved unanimously by the Board of Trustees for the new college. Construction started in 1889 and the entire building was completed in 1902. During the Spanish Flu Epidemic in 1919, the building was used as a makeshift hospital to take care the effected residents in the surrounding area. Old Main was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Name Meaning

English: occupational name for a worker in metal, from Middle English smith (Old English smið, probably a derivative of smītan ‘to strike, hammer’). Metalworking was one of the earliest occupations for which specialist skills were required, and its importance ensured that this term and its equivalents were perhaps the most widespread of all occupational surnames in Europe. Medieval smiths were important not only in making horseshoes, plowshares, and other domestic articles, but above all for their skill in forging swords, other weapons, and armor. This is the most frequent of all American surnames; it has also absorbed, by assimilation and translation, cognates and equivalents from many other languages (for forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 ).
