In this issue, we look at the companies and products that remain, a century later, a part of our popular culture and collectible interests:
In 1923, British archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter entered an undiscovered burial chamber in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings to find King Tut, still considered one of the greatest archaeological finds of modern times; Walt Disney and his brother Roy formed The Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio, now celebrating “100 Years of Wonder;” Yankee Stadium opened in the Bronx as the home ballpark of the New York Yankees, and Beatrice Alexander introduced Madame Alexander dolls to generations of children and doll collectors.
Learn more about these historic companies and events, and what they have planned for their Centennial birthdays.
