Converting Money by Time Period

How much would a 1904 thru 1914 dollar be worth today?
I am doing some research in the 1904-14 time period & would like to know the value of money then in terms of today. For example, if someone earned $240 a month, or $0.23 per hour, what are the current equivalents?
Ye Olde College Textbook has the Present & Future Values of Money formulae, but nothing for the Past. I won't even ask how the ups & downs of inflation/deflations would be inserted in the mix.

I have a economic history resourse bookmarked here: [url]http://www.eh.net/ehresources/howmuch/dollarq.php[/url]
It can "Comparing the purchasing power of money in the United States (or colonies) from 1665 to any other year including the present."
It is probably nothing I will ever be able to host here, but I will link to them.
