Baby boomer Memories Nostalgia; "The Beaver," Jerry Mathers and House with White Picket Fence

No generation has seen so much change in their lifetimes as the Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964.

Jerry Mathers as "the Beaver" was our poster boy, but not all of us lived a tranquil life in suburbia with perfect parents symbolized by Ward and June.


Send us your memories of what it was like growing up as a baby boomer.

At the beginning of the 1950's children were seen and not heard. Rock and roll, with its rebel image, changed this. Elvis and James Dean were the symbols of rebellious youth..... but then so was Pat Boone

Our fathers had jobs that they would retire from and mom stayed home with the kids.


Remember the '50s



The 1960's started with such promise. The average family owned a house in suburbia, a young president was just elected and nobody had heard of Vietnam. Ed Sullivan introduced America to John, Paul, George and Ringo. Can that really be over forty years ago?

This decade ended with protest, flower power, assassinations, and the Vietnam war going on & on & on.


Remember the '60s



The 1970's was in some ways a lost decade, an opportunity for change that was never taken advantage of.

A president resigned in disgrace and the scourge of drugs became part of our everyday life. The repulsive word "downsizing" became the norm as recession & inflation took hold. Yet we also became aware of the environment and how to protect it.
