These Timelines are a detailed look at the time and the influence of Cycles. Significant events of the decade are analyzed through Twelve categories that serve as a kaleidoscopic lens through time, (see the clickable links above), as well as the position of Cycles at the time, (see the clickable folder links in the upper left corner). You can read and link up and down vertically through this Timeline, or, you can go any Category and link horizontally to the same Category in other Timelines (links are provided at the head of each Category). This cross linking is designed to provide a fast and easy way to make reading fun and interesting.

See the go to Overview here link near the top for a brief look at Cycles for this decade.

See the Matrix links above left for navigating through all Overviews and Timelines by Time, Subject, or Cycle as described in Introduction to Part II).


Note to readers: Work from the Kala-Rhythm archives is being offered here in the Timelines for the first time. We are allowing a view into the Timelines now by posting both the finished and the unfinished pages of the Timelines as editing from our references continues.  Unfinished pages (like this one) contain raw data from history sources to which we give credit in our "biblio/webography". Check back for updates to this and other pages.

These provision, known collectively as the Platt Amendment after their sponsor, Republican Senator Orville J. H. Platt of Connecticut stipulated that (1) Cuba would sign no treaty impairing its sovereignty without the consent of the US; (2) Cuba would not incur a debt unless the interest could be met out of current revenues; (3) th US could intervene to preserve the independence or the political and social stability of Cuba; and (4) Cuba would grant to the US land of the establishment of naval bases.

Physical High (1887 - 1901)

Independent industries grew to new dimensions.  Just in 1900 and 1901 before the Crossover; the New Carnegie Steel Company became the largest to incorporate to date, and J. P. Morgan incorporated the US Steel Corporation as the first billion dollar corporation.  Morgan then bought out Carnegie in a merger that was one of more than 20 mergers to take place in the iron and steel industry in the last two years before the Crossover.  DAT^

U.S. Steel is a former Dow Jones Industrial Average component listed from April 1, 1901 to May 3, 1991. It was removed under its USX Corporation name with Navistar International and Primerica Corporation.

The formation of the US Steel Corp in February 25, 1901 was one of the earliest examples of investment bankers dominating industry. From thereon, investment institutions gained more control over industry. They owned a significant portion of stock in corporations and had more influence than the many absentee stock holders or those holders who had no voting privileges. Banks and Ins. companies gained control in corps either through holding a majority of voting stock or though granting conditional loans which returned powers. (int. 4th?)
