Notes: The homes on this page were valued at $9,000-$10,000, with rents at $40-65. Alma must have answered the questions, because Robert should have known that his mother was born in Illinois, not Indiana. We do not appreciate how big radios were in the 1920’s and 1930’s—the dot.com market of its day! Don graduates this year from Central High School (one of 492 June graduates—and 132 February graduates), having played track and football, with interests in sports, radio and boats.
