In 1929, a record 12,894,650 shares of stock were traded, causing the first day of real panic in the Crash of 1929, known as “Black Thursday.” In 1940, the 40-hour workweek went into effect under the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. In 1945, the charter for the United Nations—the international organization established at the end of World War II to maintain world peace and friendly relations among nations—entered into force. In 1956, Reverend Margaret Towner became the first woman ordained a minister in the Presbyterian Church. In 1992, the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Atlanta Braves to become the first team not based in the U.S. to win the World Series.
