1933 – 2004 World Events

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Winifred’s lifetime.

In 1933, in the year that Winifred M Wilford was born, the day after being inaugurated, the new President, Franklin Roosevelt, declared a four-day bank holiday to stop people from withdrawing their money from shaky banks (the bank run). Within 5 days of his administration, the Emergency Banking Act was passed – reorganizing banks and closing insolvent ones. In his first 100 days, he asked Congress to repeal Prohibition (which they did), signed the Tennessee Valley Authority Act, signed legislation that paid commodity farmers to leave their fields fallow, thus ending surpluses and boosting prices, signed a bill that gave workers the right to unionize and bargain collectively for higher wages and better working conditions as well as suspending some antitrust laws and establishing a federally funded Public Works Administration, and won passage of 12 other major laws that helped the economy.

In 1941, she was merely 8 years old when on June 25th, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 8802, prohibiting racial discrimination in the defense industry. EO 8802 was the first federal action to prohibit employment discrimination – without prejudice as to “race, creed, color, or national origin” – in the U.S. Civil Rights groups had planned a march on Washington D.C. to protest for equal rights but with the signing of the Order, they canceled the March.

In 1965, when she was 32 years old, the television show “I Spy” premiered in the fall season on NBC. The stars were Bill Cosby and Robert Culp, making Cosby the first African American to headline a television show. Four stations – in Georgia, Florida, and Alabama – refused to air the show.

In 1984, at the age of 51 years old, Winifred was alive when due to outrage about “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (it seemed too “dark” to many and it was rated PG), a new rating was devised – PG-13. The first film rated PG-13 was “Red Dawn”.

In 1991, Winifred was 58 years old when on November 7th, legendary basketball player Magic Johnson announced that he had HIV. In 1991, the public was confused about the difference between HIV and AIDS (HIV is a virus that can lead to AIDS) and there was little treatment for either. Most thought that Johnson would die within a year or so. Also, the transmission of AIDS wasn’t understood so he had to retire from basketball. Magic Johnson is still alive and well.
