Babies of the Centuries
by Randall L. Whipkey

Last night, Summerset Hospital celebrated the births of the last baby of the 20th century and the first baby of the 21st century with gifts for the infants and their families. Five mothers, including Mrs. Richter, were in labor as midnight approached; and, as it turned out, all delivered healthy babies around the 12:00 a.m. change of century, some before and some after the time. Given the birth records below, you should be able to find the full name of each newborn (one first name is Crystal) and when he or she was born--and thus determine the Summerset Hospital's last and first babies of the 20th and 21st centuries respectively.

  1. The last baby of the 20th century was delivered at 11:54 p.m., Dec. 31, 2000; and the first baby of the 21st century was born at 12:04 a.m., Jan. 1, 2001.
  2. David was born 22 mins. after the Walker girl and 3 mins. before Leann.
  3. Tamara was delivered 7 mins. before Sean, who arrived 10 mins. before the Jones girl.
  4. The Milano baby was born in 2001.
  5. Sean's and Leann's fathers shared the birth experience by accompanying their wives to the delivery room; Mr. Knight nervously paced the waiting room instead.
