inflation to seem low. By the figures I track, a dime in 1964 (when money
stopped being backed by silver) was a dollar in 2000. So from 1956 to 2008
would be higher still. So that would be at least $50K to $100K.

trained people in the DC/Baltimore/Philly area in the 1950's & 60's:
The CREI(Capital Radio Engineering Institute)grads and military comms
vets could get higher salaries from comms entities like
Melpar,Bendix,Philco Techrep,GE,Federal Electric,Page Communication
engineers,NSA,DCA,IT&T,Atlantic Research, etc.
I'd guess there are some CREI grads on the list.
