High School Inflation Worries During the Great Depression: Linked to Mitchell's Musings 7-4-11

04 Jul 2011 2:09 PM | Emily Smith (Administrator)


New York City radio commentator Jean Shepherd humorously recalled being shown a movie while at Hammond High School (Hammond, Indiana) about the dangers of inflation during the Great Depression. (Broadcast of June 29, 1973, WOR.) He graduated from high school in 1939 and 16mm sound projectors became available for such showings in the mid-1930s. So he must have seen the film in the late 1930s.
