"Golden Sands of Time . . . " Another graduating class


What was happening when these classmates graduated:

It was the Summer of Love.
Lyndon Johnson and Hubert Humphrey were in the white house.
Rolling Stone Magazine was in San Francisco.
The continued presence of American troops increased further and a total of 475,000 were serving in Vietnam and the peace rallies were multiplying as the number of protesters against the war increased. The boxer Muhammad Ali was stripped of his boxing world championship for refusing to be inducted into the US Army. In the Middle East Israel also went to war with Syria, Egypt and Jordan in the Six Day War and when it was over Israel controlled and occupied a lot more territory than before the war.
In England a new type of model became a fashion sensation by the name of Twiggy and mini skirts continued to get shorter and even more popular with a short lived fashion being paper clothing.
The Beatles continued to reign supreme with the release of Sargeant Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band and The Doors album had  just came out.  Star Trek was on TV and The Graduate at the theatre. The Chevy Camero was just introduced, and the Amana Microwave Oven. The Age of Aquarius was born ... (along with Pamela Anderson and Julia Roberts.)
During this year new discotheques and singles bars appeared across cities and around the world; this year was also coined the summer of love when young teenagers got friendly and smoked pot and grooved to the music of "The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and The Byrds". The movie industry moved with the times and produced movies that would appeal to this younger audience including "The Graduate," Bonnie and Clyde" and "Cool Hand Luke." TV shows included "The Fugitive" and "The Monkeys" and color television sets become popular as the price comes down and more programs are made in color.
