On the 90th anniversary of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 former New York Times reporter Ralph Blumenthal, a Distinguished Lecturer in the Newman Library, will deliver a talk at the Museum of American Finance about how cash-starved municipalities issued their own bills and coins using examples from the Baruch Archives. His presentation, “Crash! The Stock Market Collapse of 1929 and the Rise of Fake Money (Scrip)” will be followed by a Q&A session.
Admission is $5, but students and members of the Museum of American Finance may attend at no cost. This event will be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 (12:30 PM to 1:30 PM) at 48 Wall Street, 5th Floor.
