ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact when stock trading stopped on the afternoon of October 29, 1920 in Texas. As stock losses piled up in the East, industry all over the country stagnated. Factories shut down, and it was a common sight in Texas to see entire families walking the highway looking for any kind of work. In truth, Texas was not affected by the crash and the Great Depression that followed nearly so much as its cousins in the industrial states.
