1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act

Age 4

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.
1896 · Utah becomes a state

Age 10

After three prior attempts to become a state, the United States Congress accepted Utah into the Union on one condition, that all forms of polygamy were to be banned. The territory agreed, and Utah became a state on January 4, 1896.
1911 · The Salt Lake Airport

Age 25

The site for the Salt Lake International Airport started as a desolate area of the Valley that was originally used to herd sheep. A cinder-covered landing strip was subsequently created for the Great International Aviation Carnival that was held later in that same year. It brought many pioneers of the aviation industry. Aviator Glenn H. Curtiss brought his newly invented Seaplane to the carnival and demonstrated it to the public by taking off from the Great Salt Lake. It slowly grew until Charles Lindbergh visited that area. After his visit, the airfield changed into a Municipal Airport and started being a hub for most flights from New York to California. After World War II, the airport turned into an international hub for most flights in the Mountain West. In recent history, it sees around 30 million travelers each year and continues to grow in popularity by travelers to and from Utah. It became a hub for Delta Air Lines after its merger with Western Airlines.

Name Meaning

English (southern): patronymic either from the personal name Simon ( see Simon ) or, as Reaney and Wilson suggest, from the medieval personal name Simund (composed of Old Norse sig ‘victory’ + mundr ‘protection’), which after the Norman Conquest was taken as an equivalent Simon, with the result that the two names became confused.
