Roger Allen
Between the years of 1929 and 1932, because of an overproduction of tobacco, an infestation of “Blue Mold,” and the arrival of the Great Depression, Statesboro’s tobacco prices varied widely. Prices dropped from 8.9 cents a pound (1930), down to 6.2 cents a pound (1931), then rose to 7.8 cents a pound (1932), and then rose further to 10.9 cents a pound (1933).
