Wednesday November 13, 1935

(This is an entry from the journal entitled “Mexico Summer” written by Elizabeth Whipple Lancaster Carsey 80-years-ago)

Told the family on a card what I had learned.  Yesterday I had a letter from Washington about translator’s position in Civil Service.  I’ve sent in a card to be notified of an examination.  Mrs. Mulroy ate supper with us at the Cafeteria.  The 3 of us saw “Keeper of the Bees” later .  Practiced some shorthand but I am no shark at it.  Saw Bernard at the show.

Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:


Visitors to the Caterpillar Showroom admiring the 10,000th diesel engine which came off the assembly line on November 13, 1935 in a RD6 Tractor.



The R.P. Resor was built in 1935 by Federal Ship Building Co. in Kearney, New Jersey, she was launched on Saturday, November 13, 1935.  She was sunk by a German Submarine in 1942.   A video of the wreck was recorded 77 years later in 2012.


Nationalists in Egypt launched an uprising against the government.
