Events to read about this week:
World War Two and the Great London Fire started, and so did the City of Los Angeles, ATMs, Google, and EBay. Movies got projected and later produced. The War of Independence officially ended, and the Russian dominance in the chess world ended as well.
This Week’s Questions:
This is the first week since our current listing style began that does not boast a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. And there are no poets or philosophers this week, either. It seems disappointing, but it had to happen. There are plenty of other awards won by these folks, but none still alive would be likely to achieve Nobel status.
Answer to Last Week’s Questions:
1 (o), 2 (q), 3 (l), 4 (p), 5 (r), 6 (k), 7 (j), 8 (c), 9 (m), 10 (n), 11 (s), 12 (t), 13 (d), 14 (e), 15 (h), 16 (g), 17 (f), 18 (i), 19 (b), 20 (a). All these films were made from original works of these authors.
