The Big Board. Rochester, New York: Dadan, Inc., 1958.

In modern American culture, success largely has been measured in terms of wealth and material possessions. This trend was most pronounced in the 1950s, when the standard of living rose dramatically and the Depression and war years were a fading memory. Many board games developed during this time used the stock market as a model for making money.
