1923 · The Ellen Eccles Theatre

Age 3

The Ellen Eccles Theater was originally known as the Capitol Theater and was home to different vaudevilles and operas. The Theater later became solely used for community events and movies. In 1988, popular outcry from the public led to the city of Logan purchasing the theater and a not-for-profit organization was formed to renovate and operate it. Fire destroyed much of the theater's annex in 1990 during a restoration attempt by the city. However, the Theater reopened to a gala performance on January 8, 1993. It is used today for performances of the Utah Festival Opera Company along with the Cache Valley Civic Ballet, Music Theater West, Valley Dance Ensemble, Cache Theater Company, and several Utah State University performing groups.
1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 24

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.

Name Meaning

1 English: occupational name for an innkeeper, from Middle English (h)osteler (Old French (h)ostelier, an agent derivative of hostel, meaning a sizeable house in which guests could be lodged in separate rooms, derived from Late Latin hospitalis, from the genitive case of hospes ‘guest’). This term was at first applied to the secular officer in a monastery who was responsible for the lodging of visitors, but it was later extended to keepers of commercial hostelries, and this is probably the usual sense of the surname. The more restricted modern English sense, ‘groom’, is also a possible source.2 German: from a short form of a Germanic personal name formed with a cognate of Old High German ōst(an) ( see Oest ).
