Warrant G. Harding died of a heart attack in the Palace hotel in San Francisco.

Age 13

"New Jersey was severely impacted by the Great Depression. In response to the economic woes of the country, President Franklin D Roosevelt issued a series of programs and regulations referred to as the ""New Deal"". One-tenth of the New Jersey population was already using New Deal programs by 1933."

Age 22

Camp Kilmer was activated by the War Department in June 1942 following roughly one year of construction. The camp was named after Joyce Kilmer, a New Jersey poet from the 69th Infantry Regiment that had been killed during World War I. The post served as a place for soldiers to receive medical injections and supplies before loading onto ships headed to Europe. After the war, the camp remained active until the fall of 1949 to assist with processing troops that returned home from Europe.

Name Meaning

Found as a male baptismal name, called after Nestor, who was renowned among the Greeks for his eloquence, justice, and prudence. Some translate the name to mean "one who has returned home." It may come from a compound meaning firm-minded.
