120 Years: 1938

The year 1938 is one of notable milestones across America.

Superman makes his first appearance in Action Comics No. 1 while “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” is released as the first de-animated cartoon by Disney, and Orson Welles broadcasts “War of The Worlds” and sends listeners into a panic.

Beloved Seabiscuit beats War Admiral at Pimlico and Howard Hughes sets a record with his 91-hour flight around the world.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt makes a stopover at the Grand Junction train depot, greeted by 10,000 citizens. The new public library is completed at Fifth Street and White Avenue.
