Edna was born on April 20th, 1893 *.

In that year, US Marines invaded Hawaii and overthrew the Hawaiian Queen. Thomas Edison was just finishing off construction of the first movie studio. President of the United States Grover Cleveland underwent secret surgery in this year. Ulysses S. Grant was born in this year. The geologist, not the general/president!

The only important event listed on Wikipieda of this specific day in 1893 was … wait for it.

    Oh well. I hope Ms. Parker has a great birthday, and many more in the future!
