The state of Connecticut can boast many "firsts" in the nation. New Haven published the first telephone book in 1878 with only fifty names. The Hartford Courant, the nation’s oldest newspaper, began in 1764. In 1771, the Scoville Memorial Library in Salisbury opened the first publically funded library in the country. The first automotive law was passed by the state of Connecticut in 1901; the speed limit was set at 12 miles per hour. In 1937, Connecticut became the first state to issue permanent license plates for cars. Other notable inventions include the first hamburger (1934), Polaroid Camera (1934), helicopter (1939) and color television (1948).
