In my time,50s history usually meant what explorer found a mountain in peru,,,nothing or very little about The U S let alone europeon or much after 1800,,but then again the Chicago PS were usually full of childless old loons who lived alone in rooms down the street from the school,,certainly never should have been near kids,,let alone been a "teacher" and HATED MALES,,
