How Much Did Allen & Betty Spend on Parking in 1963?

Don’t we all lie awake each night pondering that very question?

A few observations:

The firm of Edward Traubner & Co. managed the business interests of many performers.  The company filed its articles of incorporation on Friday, February 17, 1956.

The couple estimated that they spent $400 on “business parking” in 1963.  In 2011 dollars, that’s about $2825.  That’s a lot of parking at a time when the average annual wage in the United States was $4,397. Where were they parking?!

Finally, this is the only example I’ve ever seen of Betty signing as Betty Ludden, rather than Betty White (personally or professionally) or Betty White Ludden (for documents & contracts).
