Goodbye Elgin High-Growing up Elgin in the 1960’s


Soft cover book (173 pages) by former managing editor of the Courier News, Mike Bailey. Goodbye Elgin High is a story of growing up in Elgin, Ill. in the turbulent 1960s. The book includes more than two dozen photographs of the city, lists of the top movies, television programs, records and world events during 1965-68. The social, political and economic upheaval of the late 1960s forever changed this mid-sized Midwestern city, as it did much of America. Poignant, funny and compelling, Goodbye Elgin High offers readers an insight into a part of America that no longer exists in an era that many believe was the last, best time to live there.
