On History: Nostalgia Is Turning Into Gold

The following article is by Frederic Hunter. It was sent out via the Christian Science Monitor Service, and this particular version was pulled from the January 6, 1974 edition of The Toledo Blade. It's a surprisingly respectful article for the time.

I'm bringing it up today because it looks at why nostalgia took hold of so many people back then in the hopes that it might offer some insights for the waves of nostalgia we see today. Manny Weltman offers this poignant, on-point analysis: "People are unhappy and depressed with the times we're living in. They want physical reminders of happier times."

Indeed, Mr. Weltman. Indeed!
