I remember reading somewhere (i think it was in Thomas Woods' "33 things..") that the economy went through a small depression in 1920.. Is this true? Why can't I find any info about it anywhere?

This is most likely what you're looking for.

Edit: and if you're looking for Austrian school literature on the subject, Rothbard's America's Great Depression discusses it.

There seem to few Internet resources discussing it directly rather than referring to it in passing.
After the post-WWI recession that caused severe hyperinflation in Europe, production in North America took a dive.
