Text and Timeline 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 between.
When we entered high school there were no microwaves at your local Sears and Roebuck, the Apollo program was just beginning, Cassius Clay had already become Muhammad Ali, Vietnam protests were getting a head of steam, Southwest Airlines had not yet opened for business, the Empire State building was still the tallest building in the world, and Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King were still with us.
