After the Ogden Canyon Resort burned down in 1927, Entrepreneur A.V. Smith bought the land and rebuilt the resort in brick.

1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 24

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.
