World Events (8)

1942 · The Japanese American internment

Age 1

Caused by the tensions between the United States and the Empire of Japan, the internment of Japanese Americans caused many to be forced out of their homes and forcibly relocated into concentration camps in the western states. More than 110,000 Japanese Americans were forced into these camps in fear that some of them were spies for Japan.
1942 · Help with the War efforts

Age 1

During World War II there were many farmers that were called to serve the country on both fronts. Because of this, many women and children had to step in to help with harvesting and maintaining the production of goods. In 1944 Mexican nationals became involved in this effort. Later, that same year, German prisoners of war were shipped to Ogden to help with the farms as well. The prisoners continued to work until after the war ended.
1958 · The First U.S. Satellite in Space

Age 17

Explorer 1 was the first satellite of the United States to be launched and successfully orbit the Earth.

Name Meaning

1 English and Irish: from a word that originally denoted a wine steward, usually the chief servant of a medieval household, from Norman French butuiller (Old French bouteillier, Latin buticularius, from buticula ‘bottle’). In the large households of royalty and the most powerful nobility, the title came to denote an officer of high rank and responsibility, only nominally concerned with the supply of wine, if at all.2 Anglicized form of French Boutilier .3 Jewish (from Poland and Ukraine): occupational name for a bottle maker, from Yiddish butl ‘bottle’ + the agent suffix -er.
