Celebrating 50 Years! 1969 – 2019

Closing Out 1968….

Posted by mcnary69 on December 4, 2018

This issue of The Piper is the next to the last issue of 1968, with the last issue to be published here and on our Facebook page (McNary Class of ’69) on December 20. 

1968 – What a year it was! MLK Jr. and RFK were assassinated; Tet and My Lai; the Smith and Carlos controversy at the Mexico Olympics … on the brighter side, also at that same Olympics, Beaman jumped the longest and OSU’s Fosbury flopped the highest … Cousteau shared his undersea world with us … we watched Earth rise over the moon with the Apollo 8 astronauts … and Corporal Ed Holcomb made it back from Vietnam in time for Christmas! You can read an interview with Ed in the next issue of The Piper.
