Remembering 1963: What happened then that affects us today?
It's been 50 years since the Soviets launched a space craft toward the moon and Dr. James Campbell performed the first human nerve transplant. For Baby Boomers and the generations that followed, 1963 marked the start of many changes -- socially, scientifically, politically and much more.
The St. Louis Beacon is focusing this year on events that occurred in 1963 and tracking them forward. What happened then that is making a difference in how we live our lives now? To help us get started, we're asking you a few broad questions. Then, over the next few months, we'll come back and ask more about specific events.
