The Year was 1967…It was a time of war and riots as well as love and music. Ronald Reagan, who had been a movie actor and would be a future U.S. President, was inaugurated as the governor of California. The Vietnam War was raging. The Human Be-In in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco in January set the stage for the Summer of Love later that year. The Beatles’ album St. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band is nicknamed the soundtrack to the Summer of Love. The American Basketball Association was formed. Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu finally were married in Las Vegas. The Monterey Pop Festival was held. There was the Six-Day Arab-Israeli War.
