Seems Like Yesterday

50 years ago (1963)

"Dependency and disability don't necessarily mean defenselessness" was the battle cry today of Gary Douglas, 33-year-old Everett man whose wheelchair sit-in at the state capital ended early this week. Now back at his home, 607 Warren Ave., Douglas was resting and hoped his friends and neighbors understood why he did it.

Everett High School Principal Mark Whitman explained some of the features of the school to Jean Ringen and Ruelyn Maag, graduates of EHS back in school as a part of their training to become teachers. Ringen, a 1960 grad, was a senior at the University of Washington. Maag, who expected to graduate from Washington State University in 1965, was a 1961 graduate.

25 years ago (1988)
