America in the '60s: JFK, the space race, Vietnam, flower power, urban riots, the Amazin' Mets, student protests, Super Bowl III, Woodstock, the Stonewall Rebellion. T.C. Murray, the late educator and historian, recalls events - from the nation to his neighborhood, that helped shape a generation. Fifteen of his former students join in the telling of personal stories about the era's politics, popular culture, science, early labor strife in New Jersey Catholic schools and much more. Readers of all ages will find history come alive in these pages! "Thomas Murray lived the credo of Horace Mann: 'Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for mankind.' He lived that credo through his students, some of whom have become very influential and powerful people in the corporate world: as leaders of hospitals, physicians, politicians, lawyers, FBI agents, and also regular citizens. We were his kids. We are his victory!" - from a tribute to Mr. Murray by Victor M. Saraiva, Essex Catholic High School ('76)
