1898 · War with the Spanish

Age 2

After the explosion of the USS Maine in the Havana Harbor in Cuba, the United States engaged the Spanish in war. The war was fought on two fronts, one in Cuba, which helped gain their independence, and in the Philippines, which helped the US gain another territory for a time.

Age 7

The Public Service Corporation (PSC) was formed on May 6, 1903. The company began as a merger of a power company with four different trolley companies. PSC would ultimately combine with over 400 other companies.

Age 20

"During a deadly heat wave, thousands of residents were at the seaside resorts of Jersey Shore. Between July 1 and July 2 of 1916, five different people were attacked by sharks, and four of them ultimately died. Scientific knowledge about sharks was limited at this time, so these tragic incidents started a wave of ""shark panic"" that was spread by telephone calls, letters, newspapers, and other media."

Name Meaning

1 Scottish and northern English: probably an occupational name for a dealer in nuts, from Middle English not(e), nut + man, although Black expresses reservations about this derivation, and it may perhaps be an occupational name for the ‘servant (Middle English man) of someone called Nott ’.2 Jewish (Ashkenazic): nickname for a poor man, from German Not ‘need’, ‘want’ + Mann ‘man’.3 Respelling of German Nothmann, from a short form of a Germanic personal name formed with a cognate of Old High German nōt ‘distress’, ‘force’ + man ‘man’.
