Walt Whitman High School Class of 1968 - The 60's
Pictures in Gallery: 80
The 1960's were well before the days of the internet, 4 cylinder SUV's,  digital photos, cell phones, and grande decaf triple shot half skim soy lattes. We are all children of that very special 60's era. Peruse our gallery and see if these images evoke any memories of our WWHS years of 1964-1968.
