Age 2

Mary Philbrook was the first woman in New Jersey to become a lawyer. She had applied for admission to the New Jersey Bar in 1894, but was rejected because the New Jersey Court stated that women were not vested with any right to be attorneys. Mary lobbied with the Jersey City Woman's Club for an update to the law, which was passed in 1895 and allowed women to become lawyers. Mary Philbrook was the first woman to be admitted after the law change.
1905 · The Movie Theater

Age 13

The world’s first movie theater was located in Pittsburgh. It was referred to as a nickelodeon as at the time it only cost 5 cents to get in. 

Age 24

"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

Irish: reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEidirsceóil ‘descendant of the messenger’, from eidirsceól ‘go-between’, ‘intermediary’, ‘news bearer’ (a compound of eidir ‘between’ + scéal ‘story’, ‘news’). Bearers of this Irish surname claim descent from a single 10th-century ancestor.
