The Wacky '70s
The 1970s yearbooks are, to be sure, the most entertaining to review. They evidence a student body enjoying a culture of freer expression, individuality, and a collective search for identity. Though the longstanding organizations focused on music, academic subjects, and popular hobbies remained, other clubs lighter in tone began appearing, such as the Magic Club of 1977. In 1976, there was a club dedicated entirely to author D.H. Lawrence.
Though the Fire Patrol originated in the 1960s with the true intent of fire education and prevention, the photo of the 1975 Fire Patrol (showing students feigning smoking while holding a fire extinguisher) suggests a slightly less earnest attitude.
