FYI, some facts/tidbits about the 1960s in America:

  • Population 177,830,000
  • Unemployment 3,852,000
  • National Debt 286.3 Billion
  • Average Salary $4,743
  • Teacher’s Salary $5,174
  • Minimum Wage $1.00
  • Life Expectancy: Males 66.6 years, Females 73.1 years
  • Auto deaths 21.3 per 100,000
  • An estimated 850,000 “war baby” freshmen enter college; emergency living quarters are set up in dorm lounges, hotels and trailer camps.

I think those $2 bits look like they would be $20 or more today.
