Lovely couple!

I have to ask- how were they usually treated, given the context of the times? Were they fortunate enough to live in a fairly liberal and progressive community?

My aunt Penny’s family was in a suburb outside of Akron OH when they met and married. I haven’t heard them talk about those times much (I can only imagine) but very soon after they moved to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco and lived there for most of the 70s. Aunt Penny has described those years as easily the best of her life. My family has always treated Joel as one of our own, and their branch of the family went on to be by far the most successful, full of lawyers, teachers, and football players.
