I've thought of a few resources that might help bring back some memories, or maybe something you can use to help explain SJV to your friends and family.

First, a movie that some might like, some might hate:

Heaven Help Us

Sixteen-year-old Michael Dunn arrives at St. Basil's Catholic Boys School in Brooklyn circa 1965. There, he befriends all of the misfits in his class as they collide with the repressive faculty and discover the opposite sex as they come of age.

IMDb Information

The time period is about right for the peak of our school.   Some parts of the movie you might bring back memories, some good, some bad.  I immediately saw characters in the movie that were so close to some I remembered it was scary.  

Go rent it and show it to your family and friends.   It might help you explain why SJV was so influential.

What other things would be helpful in explaining or documenting our days at SJV?   If you find an other web site, movie, song, anything that brings back memories, please let me know and I'll add it.
