I remember catching a live mouse that had been in a burlap bag of chicken feed alongside the chicken coop in our backyard. The next day I took the mouse to school with me (in the jar) and left it on Miss Patten's desk before school started (my Dad had a key to the school room).  Needless to say, Miss Patten was quite surprised but figured out that it must have been me that left it. I also remember having the measles and chickenpox that year and missing quite a bit of school. - Jeff Waugh

The Cuban Missile Crisis

The Cuban Missile Crisis, also known as the October Crisis (Spanish: Crisis de octubre), The Missile Scare, or the Caribbean Crisis (Russian: Карибский кризис, tr. Karibskiy krizis), was a 13-day confrontation in October 1962 between the United States and the Soviet Union over Soviet ballistic missiles deployed in Cuba. It played out on television worldwide and was the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war. - Wikipedia

I was ten years old. I remember that air raid sirens were built in our neighborhood and that we had drills at school. The San Francisco Chronicle had a depiction of ground zero and where the potential blast zone would spread out around the Bay Area. In the test drill we were to put our heads down on our desk as soon as we heard the initial siren and not move until we heard the all-clear signal. We were then arranged into groups to walk home.

The Free Speech Movement

Mario Savio and the Free Speech Movement

The Free Speech Movement (FSM) was a student protest which took place during the 1964–65 academic year on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley under the informal leadership of students Mario Savio, Jack Weinberg, Michael Rossman, Brian Turner, Bettina Aptheker, Steve Weissman, Art Goldberg, Jackie Goldberg, and others. In protests unprecedented in scope, students insisted that the university administration lift the ban of on-campus political activities and acknowledge the students' right to free speech and academic freedom. The group's primary goals were to promote the ideas of the Cuban Revolution and weaken the Cold War consensus. - Wikipedia

There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all! - Mario Savio, Sproul Hall, UC Berkely, Dec 2, 1964

The Summer of Love

The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people converged in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco. Although hippies also gathered in major cities across the U.S., Canada and Europe, San Francisco remained the epicenter of the social earthquake that would come to be known as the Hippie Revolution. Like its sister enclave of Greenwich Village, the city became even more of a melting pot of politics, music, drugs, creativity, and the total lack of sexual and social inhibition than it already was. As the hippie counterculture movement came farther and farther forward into public awareness, the activities centered therein became a defining moment of the 1960s, causing numerous 'ordinary citizens' to begin questioning everything and anything about them and their environment as a result. - Wikipedia

James Anthony Cardinale

We Remember

"HN James Anthony "Doc" Cardinale was a Navy Corpsman assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 27th Marines. On April 4, 1968, RVN Quang Tri Province, when he was mortally wounded after hearing "Corpsman Up!!!" He was running to the aid of a fallen Marine and was picked off by an enemy grenade. Besides being on the wall, this place on the home page would be a fitting tribute for him. Jim was killed 5 April, 1968."

Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated on June 6, 1968.

 

The Self-immolation of the Buddhist monk, the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy and the death of Jim Cardinale all had a significant impact on Jeff's "world view", as did other events of the time. It was during this period that he stopped saying the "Pledge of Allegiance" in high school and began to more seriously contemplate and question the "status quo" ("Remember what the doormouse said, feed your head, feed your head"...).

The Tlateloco Massacre

The Tlatelolco massacre, also known as the Night of Tlatelolco (from a book title by the Mexican writer Elena Poniatowska), was a killing of an estimated 30 to 300 students and civilians by military and police on October 2, 1968, in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in the Tlatelolco section of Mexico City. The events are considered part of the Mexican Dirty War, when the government used its forces to suppress political opposition. The massacre occurred 10 days before the opening of the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City. More than 1,300 people were arrested by security police. There has been no consensus on how many were killed that day in the plaza area. - Wikipedia

 

 

May 13, 1969
"Bloody Thursday"

People's Park Demonstration

Born on April 20, during its first three weeks People's Park was used by both university students and local residents, and local Telegraph Avenue merchants voiced their appreciation for the community's efforts to improve the neighborhood. Objections to the expropriation of university property tended to be mild, even among school administrators.

However, Governor Ronald Reagan had been publicly critical of university administrators for tolerating student demonstrations at the Berkeley campus. He had received popular support for his 1966 gubernatorial campaign promise to crack down on what the public perceived as a generally lax attitude at California's public universities. Reagan called the Berkeley campus "a haven for communist sympathizers, protesters, and sex deviants." Reagan considered the creation of the park a direct leftist challenge to the property rights of the university, and he found in it an opportunity to fulfill his campaign promise.

On Thursday, May 15, 1969 at 4:30 a.m., Governor Reagan sent California Highway Patrol and Berkeley police officers into People's Park, overriding Chancellor Heyns' May 6 promise that nothing would be done without warning. The officers cleared an 8-block area around the park while a large section of what had been planted was destroyed and an 8-foot (2.4 m)-tall perimeter chain-link wire fence was installed to keep people out and to prevent the planting of more trees, grass, flowers, or shrubs.

The action came at the request of Berkeley's Republican mayor (p 423). It became the impetus for the "most violent confrontation in the university's history."

Jock, Jeff and Violet moved to Fanny Bay, British Columbia in the summer of 1969. Jeff was interested in attending the University of British Columbia and Jock was worried that Jeff would be drafted for the War in Vietnam (he was drafted in 1971, but that's another story...). Glenda stayed in California to continue studying at UC Berkeley and Chrissie stayed to continue working for another year (at Simon's Hardware store in Walnut Creek) before retiring and joining Jock and Violet in Fanny Bay.
