* The Pocket Diaries: 1924, 1927, 1928, 1929 --- "Heart Attack" and non-Black Thursday

Note Wednesday April 24th "E. heart attack in PM" 

By May 18  "E. to New York A.M."
Note: December 21 "Supper at Church -Hall [Church-Wall?] to celebrate E. Birthday"

BLACK THURSDAY: The Stock Market Crash

Note "Radio at night" on Sunday, Nov. 8 (two weeks after Black Thursday)
Even the final days of the year  are blissfully oblivious to Wall Street.

NOTE: "Mama" came to live with the JWB's in Mount Carmel.  Here is her death notice, twenty-two years after the wedding tucked neatly into JWB's pocket diary for that date  which has the handwritten note, "Grandma C died 4.40 P.M."
