- Admiral Richard E. Byrd makes a flight over the north pole. In his radio transmission, he reports seeing a land of lush vegetation, lakes, large buffaloes or mammoths, and humans. The radio transmission is cut off. A newsreel is shown in theatres including this flight and the 1926 flight, but apparently evidence of this Hollow Earth can be seen. The newsreel is never shown again.
- Rabbi Elihu Witz is born.
- The Great Depression hits.
