1923 · The President Dies of a Heart Attack

Age 1

Warrant G. Harding died of a heart attack in the Palace hotel in San Francisco.
1923 · The Ellen Eccles Theatre

Age 1

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 22

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

English: habitational name from any of various places called Wollaston. Those in Northamptonshire (Domesday Book Wilavestone) and Worcestershire (first recorded in 1275 as Wollaueston) are named from the genitive case of the Old English personal name Wulflāf (composed of the elements wulf ‘wolf’ + lāf ‘relic’) + Old English tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The first element of the one in Shropshire (Domesday Book Willavestune) is the genitive case of the Old English personal name Wīglāf (composed of the elements wīg ‘war’ + lāf ‘relic’).
