Hammacher Schlemmer celebrates its 75th Anniversary and achieves the milestone of selling 100,000 different products. The company now operates out of four buildings and has almost three hundred employees.
The same year that the first issue of Time magazine is published, the first Yankee Stadium opens its doors to the public in the Bronx, New York City. The "Bronx Bombers" cap off their inaugural season in their new home by winning the World Series, the first of 26 they will win while playing here. New York Evening Telegram Sportswriter Fred Lieb nicknames the ballpark 'The House that Ruth Built' in honor of outfielder George Herman "Babe" Ruth whose prodigious home runs drew huge crowds.
Hammacher Schlemmer publishes a 32-page brochure to commemorate its 75th anniversary. Documenting the company's growth, as well as the corresponding expansion of New York City and the United States, the text closes with this inspiring quote by American author (and son of patriot Nathan Hale) Edward Everett Hale:
"Look up-not down,
Look out-not in,
And lend a hand."
