As related by Lyla Baur.
On was on this date, October 29, 1929, that the stock market crashed and it was the beginning of the Great Depression.
Remember Gm. (Clara) Baur relating that she took her check to the bank (she was the secretary to the Public High School Supt in New Ulm).
She ALWAYS deposited most of it BUT this time she took it all in cash, for no particular reason.
The bank teller even commented on it.
As it turned out it was the Hand of God that prompted it since later in that day the market crashed and all monies in bank were lost.
When we (Ralph & Lyla Baur) moved here and we opened a bank account., after a period of time, Dad as an heir, rec’d a few dollars that was there from a time after she closed the acct. and some monies must have been returned to acct. after the govt. had taken it all.
Always had that historical piece of info under the mirror-tray on dresser in bedroom but it must now be somewhere else and don’t know where that would be.
