Welcome to the lobotomy ladies... Men had the right to demand their wives or daughters be lobotomized against their will.... so that will teach you to be cheerful while you scrub the floors...(Joseph Kennedy, father of JFK, had his daughter lobotomized.)
First time public was aware of Hoarders. 1947: The Collyer brothers were wealthy and eccentric. Here their brownstone building is searched by NYC police after their bodies were found amid 130 tons of trash they had hoarded. It appeared that Langley had been crawling through their newspaper tunnel to bring food to his paralyzed brother & one of his own booby traps fell down & crushed him. Homer, blind, paralyzed & dependent on his brother, starved to death.
Many Americans know the 'code talkers' from WWII to be Navajo , but the original code talkers were actually from the Choctaw tribe. Nineteen men, during WWI, helped turned the tide of the war. When they decided to implement the program again for WWII, the Navajo tribe was much larger and was able to provide more code talkers
