Definition
best known sudden drop of the U.S. stock market generally thought of as the start of the Great Depression (1929)
  • The ring and the pin were the only pieces of good jewelry Irene had left from before 1929, before the stock market crash, a different kind of crash from the one in the Elizabeth River two weeks ago—back when Irene and Max Ammerman still had money, before Max lost his fancy food emporium, before Irene sold the rest of her jewelry to pay the bills, before Max had the first stroke, and then the second, the stroke that killed him on New Year's Eve, 1937, just weeks before Miri was born.
