The year was 1970. In the United States, Richard Nixon was in his first term as President. The Yearly Inflation Rate for the USA hit 5.84% while the Year End Close of Dow Jones Industrial Average was 838.  If you were looking to buy a new house, expect to spend roughly $23,450.00 while your average salary was $9,400.00. The Kansas City Cheifs were the NFL Champions, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, The New York Knicks won the NBA Finals, and The Baltimore Orioles were the World Series Champions.
