#: CBEP   ID: 9154   Section: 031920  
Description:
Rochester was growing quickly in 1959 with the recent arrival of IBM. The Cold War was raging and the Space Race was starting. The automobile industry was in turmoil much like today. Mayo Clinic was defending their reputation. Rochester hosted dignitaries such as Ann Landers; Satchel Paige; and Mrs. George McGill, a Gypsy Queen. Join Paul Koeller as he uses the headlines and photos of 1959 Rochester to explore how much has changed and how much remains the same.
