Historian Jim Gibbons will present life in the 1970’s. Change is what the 1970’s offered with styles such as bell-bottom trousers, wide ties, flowered shirts, leisure suites, afro hairdos, and patent leather shoes. We also had presidential changes in the oval office from Nixon, to Ford, and then to Carter. The 70’s launched with Chicago’s Mayor Richard J. Daley and ended with Mayor Jane Byrne. Gibbons will show you how our ideas have been changed due to Watergate and Vietnam.
