We’re delighted to bring you yet another yearbook from Liberty Central School in Liberty, New York — the Libertas for 1967.
If you know the area — Sullivan County, NY, the Borscht Circuit, the Catskills — you can juxtapose the year and the fate that befell the area after the resort industry declined and virtually vanished. The fact that Sullivan County is now in a rapid upswing doesn’t diminish the depths to which it was to sink in the latter half of the 20th century.
Yet it’s obvious from the happy faces of this crop of graduates that none of this was even remotely on their radar at the time they graduated. Yes, the Vietnam War was ramping up; yes, there were troubles brewing, but this class looks as happy as we have seen a graduating class look.
At any rate, the yearbook is now available for download from our website. Please take a look. You can find it on our “Liberty page” — or http://www.betweenthelakes.com/NY/sullivan/liberty/liberty.htm
While you’re there, take a few minutes to look around! There’s lots more to see in addition to the Libertas for 1967!
