How Much Money Did The Money Leader In Golf Make In The 1920S?From Golf Forum:
How much money did the money leader in golf make in the 1920s? I am trying to compare the S's to today. Comparing prices and wages were part of my research. But I can not find how much golfers made in the S's.
Answer: I don't know about the S's.
Byron Nelson's career from 1932-1946 included 63 GPA Tour wins. He said in an interview in Golf Digest that his career winnings totaled $182,000. I read that article last year, and I remembered that he talked about money and the Great Depression.
Addendum: I found another interview of Byron Nelson at Golf.com:
[Golf Magazine] Tell me more about the money you couldn't make in your heyday.
[Byron Nelson] I won the 1936 Metropolitan Open, my first important tournament, with $5 in my pocket. From '36 to '42 I won 19 times including four majors, and my entire winnings were $25,495. That's about $4,000 a year. So I made my expenses. My career winnings were $182,000. In 1939, Cliff Roberts, who ran The Masters, told me, "Byron, you're going to have to care for your money because you'll never make enough playing golf."
Addendum #2: I found the prize money for the Open Championship at Wiped. First prize in 1920 was £75, and it increased to £100 by 1929.

Answer: Social Issues, 1920s The original KY Flux Klan had died out in the late S's as post-Civil War Reconstruction was drawing to a close. A myth persisted, however, that the organization had been largely responsible for saving the South from corrupt outside influences. In 1915, a new Klan was started in Stone Mountain, Georgia, by William Simmons, a Methodist minister who had taken inspiration from the favorable portrayal of the Klan in D.W. Griffith's epic film, The Birth of a Nation. Emphasizing costumes, rallies and secret rituals, the Klan grew rapidly in the South. The initial targets were blacks, whom many whites felt had been warped by wartime experiences. Black workers on the home front had earned respectable wages and expected the same after the war, and black veterans, who had witnessed a racially tolerant society in France, longed for a more accepting America. Perturbed whites believed the blacks had to be put back in their place. The appeal of the Klan spread to the North and West, and at its peak in the mid-1920s achieved a total membership of four million or more. Members served in state legislatures and Congress, and were elected to the governorship in several states. Indiana, Oklahoma, Texas and Oregon saw significant Klan influence. The central Klan offices marketed regalia and literature to local units, but agendas were molded by community conditions and concerns. Blacks were the subject of Klan activity in both the North and South, as were Jews, Catholics and immigrants. The Klan also organized to oppose the teaching of evolution in the schools, dissemination of birth control devices and information, and efforts to repeal prohibition. Probably the majority of Klan members confined their opposition tactics to parading and burning crosses, the latter an innovation of the new Klan. However, violence was not uncommon — public whippings, tarring and feathering, and lynching occurred in many sections of the country. Serious concern about Klan activity was raised early in its history, especially by a series of exposés in the Baltimore Sun and the New York World. It was, however, the conduct of a number of Klan leaders that finally led to the group's decline. In particular, Indiana Klan leader David Stephenson was convicted in 1925 of kidnapping and second degree murder. To get his sentence lightened, he implicated other Indiana officials whose corrupt activities were widely reported. By 1930, membership nationwide had plummeted to around 10,000. In the West and South, the second KY Flux Klan comprised largely poor, rural and fundamentalist Protestant members who believed that evil came from the cities, non-Northern European immigrants and a postwar tolerance for loose morality. A more urban character was evident in the North. http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1381.html --------------- A hysterical white girl related that a nineteen-year-old colored boy attempted to assault her in the public elevator of a public office building of a thriving town of 100,000 in open daylight. Without pausing to find out whether or not the story was true, without bothering with the slight detail of investigating the character of the woman who made the outcry (as a matter of fact, she was of exceedingly doubtful reputation), a mob of 100-per-cent Americans set forth on a wild rampage that cost the lives of fifty white men; of between 150 and 200 colored men, women and children; the destruction by fire of $1,500,000 worth of property; the looting of many homes; and everlasting damage to the reputation of the city of Tulsa and the State of Oklahoma.---------http://www1.assumption.edu/ahc/raceriots/default.html --------------------- Women of the Klan: Racism and Gender in the S's http://xroads.virginia.edu/~ug97/blues/klan1.html
Why Did The World Shift Towards Totalitarian Regimes During The S'S And 1930S?From History Forum:
Why did the world shift towards totalitarian regimes during the S's and 1930s? Why did the world shift towards totalitarian regimes during the S's and 1930s? What social, economic, and historical factors made them popular? Be sure to refer to at least two totalitarian regimes.
Answer: Basically totalitarianism triumphed for two reasons. First, many people were convinced that certain ideologies like communism or Nazism, were the final truth. Proponents of such ideologies did not believe in democracy, or that democracy or pluralism should replace the old monarchical regimes. Since they believed that only one ideology, and one governmental system based on it were worthwhile, people shouldn't have a choice in how they were to be governed, or what they could believe. Only the leaders of the parties representing the "true" ideologies were deemed worthy of making the big decisions. Second, two major crises, one before the S's, and the other by the start of the thirties, gave the totalitarian leaders their chance. WWI caused people to turn against the German and Russian monarchies. The communists, who long predated the Nazis, were already in a position to take advantage of the fall of Russian monarchy to replace it, via revolution and civil war, with their own system. The Nazis, however, didn't yet exist to exploit the fall of the kaiser; democracy replaced monarchy at first. The Nazis had to wait for the next major crisis, the depression, which undermined the Wiemar democracy just as the defeat in WWI undermined the kaiser. It's not true, BTW that totalitarianism triumphed because people were just used to living under authoritarianism. Like the french and British before them, many Germans wanted representative government, but luck just ran out on it and the Nazis won.
What Factors Bid Stock Prices Up During The S'S Creating The Bull Market?From Investing Forum:
What factors bid stock prices up during the S's creating the bull market? What factors bid stock prices up during the S's creating the bull market? I have no idea????
Answer: In the early 1930’s, many U.S. companies’ shares were selling below their net-quick asset value (current assets minus all liabilities), and in some cases well below net-quick asset value. In other words, these companies were worth more to the stockholders in liquidation than as going concerns in the stock market. Ignorance of the facts: Investors were no longer paying attention to the balance sheet. Over the past decade, investors had become too accustomed to looking only at the earnings statements. Asset values were a thing of the past. An over-subscription of shares during the late S's bull market resulted in increased working capital values but an over-dilution of shares outstanding. As the economy and stock market decline accelerated, investors impulsively sold out. Meanwhile, those that recognized the excellent values in the market had an inability to buy due to dire economic conditions. Expectation that future losses would squander away the company’s healthy working capital positions. If a company is expected to lose money indefinitely, why stay in business? When the company can be purchased well below net quick asset value and then liquidated, why not wind up the business and collect the money?
