    1944 · The G.I Bill
    Age 2
    The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.
    1948 · The Dixiecrats
    Age 6
    Dixiecrats were members of a right-wing splinter group who opposed federal intervention on state matters such as race and labor relations. After failing to prevent the nomination of Harry Truman at the Democratic National Convention, over 6,000 people from 13 southern states met at the Dixiecrat Convention in Birmingham on July 17, 1948. Here, Governor Strom Thurmond was nominated for president and Governor Fielding L. Wright was nominated for vice president. The Dixiecrats hoped to win enough electoral-college votes in the southern states to prevent either Republican or Democrat nominee from winning enough electoral votes for election. Truman was elected on November 2, 1948, and the Dixiecrats received only 39 electoral votes.
    1958 · The First U.S. Satellite in Space
    Age 16
    Explorer 1 was the first satellite of the United States to be launched and successfully orbit the Earth.

    Name Meaning

    German and Swiss German: from Middle High German meier, a status name for a steward, bailiff, or overseer, which later came to be used also to denote a tenant farmer, which is normally the sense in the many compound surnames formed with this term as a second element. Originally it denoted a village headman (ultimately from Latin maior ‘greater, superior’). This form of the surname is also established in France (mainly Alsace and Lorraine); see also 3 below. Compare Maier , Mayer , Meier , and Myer .Jewish (Ashkenazic): from the Yiddish personal name Meyer, from Hebrew Meir ‘enlightener’, a derivative of or ‘light’ with the prefix m-. Compare Maier , Majer , Major , Mayer , Mayor , Meier , and Meir .Dutch: variant, also Flemish and Americanized, of Meijer , a cognate of 1 above. This surname is also established in South Africa, where it was also brought from France (see 1 above).
