The 1960s
An intriguing and transformational era for American society, the decade of the 1960s consisted of a series of political movements that combined with aesthetic explosions in the arts and music fields. The resulting combustion rocked the culture to its bones and roots. Civil rights, free speech and peace movements combined with the electrification of guitars and pianos to create rifts between the young, the middle aged, and the elderly. Generation gaps blotted the landscape. Political assassinations, artist deaths, senseless murders, all enraged and sensitized the citizenry. President Kennedy, his brother Robert, Martin Luther King, Jr., Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix all died from various forms of extremism. Charles Manson and his gang of zombies spilled havoc in the hills of Hollywood. Talk about the center collapsing...that's what the decade was all about.

It starts. On February 24, 1960 the United States Food and Drug Administration approved the sale of Librium, an antidepressant drug. An omen. The Xerox 914 copier, a machine that ushers in a revolution in paperwork reproduction begins selling. Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is released. Annual U.S. beef consumption is 99 pounds per person. The G.D. Searle pharmaceutical company introduces Enovid 10, the first commercially available oral contraceptive for women. Each pill costs .55, $11.00 per month. All in 1960, each an omen. The world's population in 1960: 3 billion human beings, up a billion since 1930.

It ends. In 1969 the world's population exceeds 3.6 billion. And tucked in between Woodstock and Altamont, the pregnant Sharon Tate is murdered and the New York Mets, improbably, beat the Baltimore Orioles to win their first World Series. The decade of the 1960s is less a chronological continuum than a surreal trip through Dante's Dizzyland.
