1930 · Carlsbad Caverns Established

Age 2

Carlsbad Caverns in Carlsbad, New Mexico, became a National Park on May 14, 1930. Tourists can explore the caverns through guided and self-guided tours. In the 1960's, an amphitheater opened and started where tourists can sit and watch as the bats exit the cave for the night. The only part of the caverns that is off limits to tourists is where the bats come out.

The Yalta Conference was held in Crimea to talk about establishing peace and postwar reorganization in post-World War II Europe.

Later the Conference would become a subject of controversy at the start of the Cold War.

Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: from the Breton personal name Aeruiu or Haerviu, composed of the elements haer ‘battle’, ‘carnage’+ vy ‘worthy’, which was brought to England by Breton followers of William the Conqueror, for the most part in the Gallicized form Hervé. (The change from -er- to -ar- was a normal development in Middle English and Old French.) Reaney believes that the surname is also occasionally from a Norman personal name, Old German Herewig, composed of the Germanic elements hari, heri ‘army’ + wīg ‘war’.2 Irish: mainly of English origin, in Ulster and County Wexford, but sometimes a shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hAirmheadhaigh ‘descendant of Airmheadhach’, a personal name probably meaning ‘esteemed’. It seems to be a derivative of Airmheadh, the name borne by a mythological physician.3 Irish (County Fermanagh): shortened Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó hEarchaidh ‘descendant of Earchadh’, a personal name of uncertain origin.
