When reading any sort of history, references to time passing abound. Depending on the perception of the person writing, a generation is negligible enough to allow for many to pass before anything noteworthy occurs. On the other hand, one generation can be all that matters. Apropos of nothing more than that, I wondered who was live one generation ago, as counted by my family.

The lives mentioned below overlapped with at least one of my parents:

  • John D. Rockefeller
  • Alexander Graham Bell
  • Princess Beatrice of the United Kingdom
  • Jack Johnson
  • William Howard Taft
  • Lady Gaga
  • Lebron James
  • Bill Gates
  • Pete Buttigieg
  • Kim Kardashian
