Inflation! Inflation! Inflation!

Times have certainly changed! Todays treasure is a tuition payment card for Jean Orel, 1948 graduate of Loretto Academy in Woodlawn. $9.00 a month back then.

Now the annual high school tuition for a similar girls’ high-school in the Chicago area would cost you from $11,000 to $15,00 per year (based on a non-scientific, informal search of girls’ high schools in the Chicago area).New treasures from the archives will be posted the first and third Wednesday each month.
