1931 · The Prehistoric Minnesota Woman

Age 15

The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.
1931 · The Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks

Age 15

The Bagnell Dam on the Osage River was completed in 1931. The dam was built to generate hydroelectric power to the Osage Power Plant. The building of the dam created Lake of the Ozarks, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, and over 1,000 miles of shoreline.
1937 · The Neutrality Act

Age 21

The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
