2012 is still quite a bit away for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. However, that had me thinking of other closer 100 year anniversaries of events. Here in North Carolina, December of this year will mark the 100th anniversary of the first flight by the Wright Brothers. Already our state is celebrating with different events and activities leading up to the actual reinactment of that day this December 2003. Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the 1904 Worlds Fair n St. Louis. That fair has always been another interest of mine. I have been to Forest Park in St. Louis where the fair was held and was expecting to see some of the fancy buildings that were once on the grounds of the fair. I soon learned that the buildings where made of cheaply made temporary material. I hope that in the year 2012, the story of the Titanic will be bigger than it was during its zenith years of 1997-1998. Could you imagine a place where every Titanic historian, every Titanic buff, could display his or her Titanic memorablia under one roof? Can anyone think of any other upcoming 100 year anniversaries?
