1933: Now and Then

We all remember Dad's birthday, but it turned out yesterday that we were hazy on his year of birth; datum required for for filling in a form. I teased it out (1933) by looking at my family tree. Let's just meditate for a moment on how odd it is that I reached for that as a reference.

He was born on March 8.

  • March 7 – The real-estate trading board game Monopoly was invented in the United States.
  • March 9 – Great Depression: The United States Congress began its first 100 days of enacting New Deal legislation.
