1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act

Age 1

This Act tried to prevent the raising of prices by restricting trade. The purpose of the Act was to preserve a competitive marketplace to protect consumers from abuse.

Age 5

Mary Philbrook was the first woman in New Jersey to become a lawyer. She had applied for admission to the New Jersey Bar in 1894, but was rejected because the New Jersey Court stated that women were not vested with any right to be attorneys. Mary lobbied with the Jersey City Woman's Club for an update to the law, which was passed in 1895 and allowed women to become lawyers. Mary Philbrook was the first woman to be admitted after the law change.

Age 24

A strike led by silk mill workers in Paterson, New Jersey. The primary demands of the strike were focused on improved quality of working conditions and establishing an eight-hour workday limit. Two protestors were killed during the strike, and over 1,850 workers were arrested. The strike ultimately ended in failure, due to the manufacturers' inability to accept the demands of the strikes.

Name Meaning

English and Welsh: patronymic from the Middle English personal name Jon(e) ( see John ). The surname is especially common in Wales and southern central England. In North America this name has absorbed various cognate and like-sounding surnames from other languages. (For forms, see Hanks and Hodges 1988 ).
