It is the people that make the past what it was. The lives people live, decisions they make, and things they accomplish are all woven into the tapestry of history and tell the story of the time period. That is true with the people shown in this collection of photos. These people – all icons of the groovy era – have left their imprint on the era. Let's see how many of them you can remember.

Folk singer Joan Baez’s music was symbolic of the 1960s counterculture movement. She was a true hippie chick who blended rock, gospel, and country influences into the folk genre. In addition to recording her own songs, she sang covers of songs by other artists including, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, the Beatles, the Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, and more. In fact, she in the early 1960s, she was one of the first singers to cover Bob Dylan’s songs. It was instrumental in bringing Dylan’s early songwriting into the international spotlight.

National Lampoon’s Animal House was filmed on location at the University of Oregon in 1978, but it was almost a miracle that it happened. The producers sent the film’s script to more than 250 colleges and universities around the country, asking for permission to film on their campus. Every college rejected the offer, explaining that the script was in such bad taste that they didn’t want their campus associated with the movie. All except one, that is. About a decade before, the University of Oregon’s president rejected another studio that wanted to shoot on campus. That film, The Graduate, ended up being a big hit. The president didn’t want to miss out on another sleeper hit so he granted permission.
