How much did the Dow Jones drop from Dec. 31, 1929, to June 30, 1930?

You can get the history of the Dow pretty easily, along with other stock indexes and individual stocks.  A lot of sites will do it, but I usually turn to Yahoo Finance for stock market history.  The Dow closed at $241.70 on December 2, 1929.  The closing price on June 30, 1930 was 226.34.  It would be another two years before the Dow hit its all time low of $41.62 on July 5, 1932.
