Text and Timeline Contributed by Dale Silver

The years we were in high school, all or part of which was spent at Northfield/Mt. Hermon, were eventfully transitional for us, the country and the world.  It is amazing to look back on the years from 1967-1970 and see all of the cultural and political activity that we witnessed.
