FinanceProfessor.com trivia

I had a request for my old trivia page that had been taken off the website. So here it is. I had not looked at it in years. Some are pretty interesting.
FinanceProfessor.com trivia

For instance:
#34. Ronald Reagan was the first president to visit the NYSE
#36. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a finance major
#41. The Founder of Merrill Lynch (Charles Merrill) played semi-pro baseball prior to coming to Wall Street. The Lynch in the name is from Edward Lynch who was a soda fountain salesman
#68. The slowest day is NYSE history was March 16, 1830, when only 31 shares changed hands

some of them are really dated, but still interesting.
