When in Rome...

Today, our Reference Department received a call from the friendly folks at Progressive Chevrolet in Massillon, proving that yes, everyone can make good use of their local library, even local auto dealerships!

One of Progressive's staff members found himself in a quandary when he stumbled upon the Roman numeral MCMXLII during his work day today. Joking that he must not have been paying attention when Roman numeral conversion was taught in grade school, he asked if we could decode the letters for him.

Using the handy Roman numeral converter available at IV, we discovered that the year in question was actually 1942.

We hope we helped Progressive with today's information pursuit! Thanks for thinking of us!
