The Cost of Living in 1938
'The Secrets of Mudge Bay', my soon to be published historical fiction, is based on the real life tragedy of Daniel Dodge
Daniel, the 21 year old heir to the Dodge Motor Company fortune, had access to $30,000.00 A MONTH in 1938.
His bride of 13 days from Manitoulin Island, was making $15 a week as a telephone operator, when Daniel mysteriously drowned in the North Channel of Georgian Bay.
There was just her and her friends in the boat with Daniel, at the time.
