1946 was an important year. The baby boom began with the birth of 3,400,000 babies. It was a year that helped develop our culture and our country’s outlook as a whole. We were building ranch houses in the suburbs. It was full of progressive events that affect our lives today. It was full of many firsts like the first general-purpose computer. Proctor & Gamble introduces Tide. Mobster Bugsy Siegel built the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. Richard Byrd heads an expedition to the North Pole.
