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.
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 Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Name Meaning

Finnish: ornamental name from lampi ‘pond’, which was widely adopted during the name conversion movement in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It is found predominantly in central and eastern Finland. In the U.S. it is also found as an abbreviation of other Finnish surnames such as Sankilampi.
