Eisenhower attended Abilene High School until he graduated in 1909. For the next two years after his graduation, he worked at a creamery with his uncle and his father to help pay for his brother’s college tuition. In 1911, he was admitted into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Throughout high school and college, Eisenhower enjoyed participating in various sports, but academically, he was average. After graduating in 1915, he became second lieutenant at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, where he met his wife, Mamie Doud.
His grandfather was William Henry Harrison, the 9th president. Ben was the second of the 10 children of John Scott Harrison and Elizabeth Irwin Harrison. Harrison attended Farmers' College in a Cincinnati suburb for three years. While a freshman, he met his future wife, Caroline Lavinia Scott. Harrison and "Carrie" Scott were married in 1853.
At this time, Jacob was eleven years old and Wilhelm was about to be ten (Grimm Brothers’ Home Page 1). In 1910, the Disney family moved to Kansas City. Walt helped his father’s newspaper distribution business by delivering newspapers. “Walt attended Benton School, and occasionally surprised his teachers with his talent for drawing and acting. (Disney A to Z, 143)” The family moved back to Chicago where Disney would attend McKinley High School for one year.
Less than a year later he moved to Wilkinson County, Mississippi. Three of his brothers served in the war of 1812. He began his education in 1813 at Wilkinson Academy, near the family cotton plantation. Davis Later attended a catholic school called Saint Thomas. When he was there he was the only protestant student in attendance.
Late in 1816 the Lincoln family moved to southern Indiana and settled near present day Gentryville. A cabin was constructed near Little Pigeon Creek. It measured 16 X 18 feet, and it had one window. Abraham's mother, Nancy, passed away on October 5th, 1818, she died of milk sickness. In 1819, Abraham would barrow books from his neighbors to read.
Hemingway was born in the Hemingway family home, which was built by his grandfather Ernest Hall. He was the second child out of six, that were born to Clarence and Grace Hemingway. He had four sisters and one brother. He was named after his mother's father Ernest Hall and his great uncle Miller Hall. The area Ernest grew up in was a very conservative area of Illinois.
Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, in Oak Park, Illinois, to Dr. Clarence Hemingway and Grace Hall Hemingway. Oak Park was a mainly Protestant, upper middle-class suburb of Chicago that Hemingway would later refer to as a “town of wide lawns and narrow minds" (Gerogiannis 188). The second among six children, Ernest spent the first two years of his life dressed as a girl by his mother. She called him “Ernestine” and fantasized that he was the twin of his older sister, as she dressed them both in matching dresses and gave them similar hairstyles (Rozkis 233) As he grew older, however, his father stepped in and insisted that Ernest be “raised like a man,” teaching Ernest how to behave and introducing him at a young age to hunting, fishing, and boxing, all activities in which he would stay interested for the rest of his life (Gerogiannis) It is perhaps this early start at questioning his manliness and his father’s attempts to drive any femininity out of him that instilled his characteristic obsession with proving his masculinity throughout his life. Schlusemeyer 2 Hemingway received his schooling in the Oak Park public school system.
All of these authors were influential to him, but none more than the famous H. G. Wells (Grebstein 24). He accomplished all this during college while keeping two or more jobs at one time and writing for several papers along with his own books that he wrote. In October of 1906 he left school for a few months and stayed with his brother in his utopian colony in New Jersey. A few months later he remembered the work ethics his father taught him and went back to school and got his degree in 1907.
During four years at college, despite his reclusive nature, he established close friendships with his male classmates, several of which he maintained for life. These four years of shared human companionship were contrasted by the following twelve years of self-imposed isolation spent in the upper floor of his mother's home in Salem, trying to master the art of writing. It was during those twelve years of isolation, while researching local New England history for background use in his fiction, that Hawthorne made a startling discovery. His 17th century paternal ancestors, whom he had assumed to have been yeoman farmers or seafaring men, had been illustrious founders as well as political and religious Puritan leaders of Salem. "Young Goodman Brown" was influenced by this Puritan heritage; by Hawthorne's personality which had acquired a skeptical, dual-outlook on life; and by Hawthorne's mental and moral beliefs thathe revealed.
Donald’s best friend during his early years of school was his two-year younger brother, Robert. He did not look up to his older brother Freddie, rather he saw him as someone to compete with for his fathers throne, which he knew was already his. His oldest sister, Maryanne, acted like a mother towards him rather than an older sister (Mortiz, 1987, p.36) During his summer breaks, Donald would work with his father and later join the company. He impressed his father with his quick mind and natural instinct. During that time, his father announced the start of a 3,000-unit apartment complex to be built on 40 acres in Coney Island (O’Donnel, 1991, p.67).
