964 Winter 2019 Were You There? The 1964-65 New York World's Fair
Tuesday, 2:15–3:40, Feb. 5
Tallwood
Instructor: Martha Powers

More than 50 million people visited the World's Fair in Queens, NY, in 1964-65. They saw pavilions touting products by Chevrolet, IBM, Westinghouse, and other corporations, while noshing on Belgian waffles and Chun King delicacies. If you were there, you may remember the iconic Unisphere, the US Royal Tire Ferris wheel, and the introduction of the Ford Mustang. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, this class will offer video clips and photos galore from the fair, along with opportunities for OLLI members to share memories about this once-in-a-lifetime event. We'll also examine a perturbing question: why do we no longer have such marvelous fairs today?
