1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 1

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.
1905 · The Industrial Workers of the World

Age 5

The Industrial Workers of the World was founded after a convention was held by radical trade unionists from all over the United States who opposed the policies of the American Federation of Labor. The IWW opposed the American Federation of Labor's acceptance of capitalism and its refusal to include unskilled workers in craft unions. The convention took place on June 24 and was referred by the workers as the Industrial Congress or the Industrial Union Convention. The IWW aimed to promote worker solidarity in the revolutionary struggle to overthrow the employing class.
1925 · The Goodman Theatre

Age 25

The Goodman Theatre was founded as a tribute to the Chicago playwright Kenneth Sawyer Goodman, who died in the Great Influenza Pandemic in 1918. The theater was funded by his parents, who donated $250,000 to the Art Institute of Chicago. The first theater was designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw and its opening ceremony was performed on October 20.
