November 21st Celebrated History

1783
Brothers Jacques-Étienne and Joseph-Michel Montgolfier launched Dr. Jean-François Pilatre de Rozier and François Laurent up in the first successful untethered hot-air balloon flight. The brothers’ cloth balloon took their passengers aloft 5.5 miles over Paris. Can you imagine the view?

1902
The Philadelphia Athletics squared off against the Kanaweola Athletic Club at the Maple Avenue Driving Park in Elmira, New York, for the first-ever professional football night game. The final score was 39-0 in favor of the Philadelphia Athletics. We wonder how many fans stayed for the whole game.

1905
Albert Einstein publishes a paper in the journal Annalen der Physik that leads to his mass-energy equivalence formula, E=mc²

1922
The first woman appointed to Senator takes the oath of office. On October 3, 1922, Rebecca Latimer Felton was appointed by the Georgia governor to fill a vacancy. She served only 24 hours while the Senate was in session, as Democrat Walter George was elected shortly before the next session was convened.

November 21st Celebrated Birthdays

Hetty Green – 1834
From a young age, Green’s shrewd understanding of money earned her a ruthless reputation in the world of finance. After the death of her husband Edward Henry Green in 1936, she earned the nickname “Witch of Wall Street” after appearing in her mourning clothes. She died one of the richest women in the world.

Dorothy “Mickey” Maguire – 1918
As a catcher, Mickey played seven seasons in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League. During her career, she played on two World Champion teams.

Georgia Frontiere – 1927
In 1979, Frontiere became 70% owner of the Los Angeles Rams. She was the second woman in NFL history with majority ownership of a team.

Etta Zuber Falconer – 1933
As one of the few African American women with a Ph.D. in mathematics, Falconer set out to change that. She established several science programs designed to encourage women to continue their educations in math and sciences. Well before STEAM and STEM programs, Falconer knew math and science were important to our future.
