Firstly, I would like to tell some words about outstanding american origami teacher Lilian Oppengamer. If I am not mistaken, it was she who invented ORIGAMI FAIRY-TALES, showing her endless love to children and the art of origami. It is not in vane, that for The Day of Origami in the United States it was chosen October, 24 - that is her birthday.

 This lady managed to make thousands of children and adults love origami. She created the first Origami centre in New-York and started publishing "The Origamian" bulletin. Due to her work, origami being almost unknown in America up to the middle of XX century became popular. She has beat a world record in teaching origami: she had been teaching it up to her 93! 

March, 14 is another Date for origami modern history. It is Akiro Yoshizawa`s birthday. He has developed a special diagramming system used to describe the folds of origami models. If used properly, no more text is needed for explanation. That was certainly very helpful for origami popularzation.
