Health Care Heroes & Chicago Of Old

You're the conductor of your train back in time. No tickets are necessary, just open-minded discovery.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

Born in Vienna, I became a star after meeting Louis B. Meyer in the 1930s. After appearing in 30 films, I took my talents to science. That's right, I helped co-invent frequency-hopping spread spectrum, a precursor to Bluetooth and wi-fi technology.

On this day

The American Red Cross is born

After learning about the Red Cross in Switzerland, Clara Barton opened the American Red Cross for business on this day in 1881. Nearly 140 years later, it is still working to bring medical aid around the world.
