1912 · The Girl Scouts

1913 · Women get the right to vote in Illinois

Grace Wilbur Trout was elected president of the Chicago Political Equality League and started her presidency by making sure that each senate district was supporting suffrage for women. A few months later, the bill was up for voting in the state. Trout and her team went as far as to get male voters from their homes. The bill passed giving Women the right to vote for President of the Nation and all local offices not in the Illinois Constitution.

1933 · Another World's Fair

The city of Chicago was presented with another chance to host a World's Fair. It was offered to the city to commemorate the 100 years of its existence. Many people didn't like the idea of them having another Worlds Fair because the nation, as a whole, was coming out of the Great Depression.

Name Meaning

English and Scottish: occupational name for a miller. The standard modern vocabulary word represents the northern Middle English term miller, an agent derivative of mille ‘mill’, reinforced by Old Norse mylnari (see Milner ). In southern, western, and central England Millward (literally, ‘mill keeper’) was the usual term. In North America, the surname Miller has absorbed many cognate surnames from other languages, for example German Müller (see Mueller ), Dutch Mulder and Molenaar , French Meunier , Italian Molinaro , Spanish Molinero , Hungarian Molnár (see Molnar ), Slovenian, Croatian, and Serbian Mlinar , Polish Młynarz or Młynarczyk (see Mlynarczyk ). Miller (including in the senses below) is the seventh most frequent surname in the US.

South German, Swiss German, and Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Müller ‘miller’ (see Mueller ) and, in North America, also an altered form of this. This form of the surname is also found in other European countries, notably in Poland, Denmark, France (mainly Alsace and Lorraine), and Czechia; compare 3 below.

Americanized form of Polish, Czech, Croatian, Serbian, and Slovenian Miler ‘miller’, a surname of German origin.
