Spirit of the Times

It has occasionally been said that the sixties didn’t start until 1970. Certainly through the late 1960s, WSU students appear very ‘square’ – men are always in button down shirts and ties during school; women are in calf-length dresses. The change happens fast – football programs in 1968 depict players with flattops and suit jackets, but by 1972 they have long hair. These changes are a result of ideas and events happening at WSU throughout. This exhibit highlights some of these changes.
